Cricklewood Town Team members have been decorating the artwork they have installed over the years at Thameslink's station to raise its profile.

Tinsel and a Santa's hat now festoon the colourful cow, which was designed and installed by local artist Alistair Lambert, while Christmas lights adorn the large Cricklewood sign.

There are two living Christmas trees and more tinsel around the sheep who "graze" in nearby Cricklewood Lane.

Marie Hancock, a CTT member, said: "When we were putting up the decorations people stopped to chat or smile and take a photo and wanted to help and join in some festive cheer."
