Berlin Lamp in Furnivall Gardens to Be Re-dedicated
Ceremony on Thursday will re-assert twinning of Neukoelln and Hammersmith
An unusual re-dedication ceremony is set to take place in Hammersmith's Furnivall Gardens tomorrow, Thursday 12 September, organised by the Friends of the riverside park.
The Friends say it will be a brief ceremony, re-asserting the friendship ("twinning" or "jumelage") which exists between the municipality of Neukoelln and the borough of Hammersmith. At the original ceremony there were four municipalities being "twinned" with Hammersmith: one from Paris, from Brussels, from Amsterdam and from (West) Germany.
Both the Lamp and the plaque below have been painstakingly rerefurbished and put back into position.
The Friends say they want to celebrate the reinstatement of this beautiful, working lamp, with drinks and canapes on offer at the reception following the ceremony.
