A festive tea party with the mayor is being offered to kind-hearted residents who need an antidote for the winter blues.
Mayor of Kensington and Chelsea, Cllr Joanna Gardner, has launched a competition to reward residents who deserve a treat for their hard work, kindness, or community spirit.
The prize for winners is a lavish Christmas tea party for 15 special people, who can each bring a friend, that either live or work within Kensington or Chelsea.
The mayor explained: "I want to hear about those very special people in borough who, though small acts of kindness, make a big difference, or those who need or deserve some Christmas cheer.
"If there is someone who, for whatever reason, you think is special then I'd like to know. People can even nominate themselves."
Each winner can bring a friend to the event, which will be packed with mountains of tea, coffee, cake and sandwiches. The sit-down tea will be held on Thursday, December 18, in the lavish surroundings of Mayor's Parlour in the Royal Borough Town Hall in Hornton Street, Kensington, which is full of historic crests and beautiful paintings.
To enter, tell the mayor why, in up to 100 words in a letter or email, you think either yourself or a person you know deserves an invite.
Letters should be sent to Room 230/3 Kensington Town Hall, Hornton Street, Kensington, W8 7NX, or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The closing date is Friday, November 14, and entries will be judged by the mayor and our reporter Ellie Dyer - who will also be attending.
