Community Festival - August 30, 2008

The community festival on August 30 was a huge success. The weather was summer-y (for a change!) and many helpers pitched in to make the day a success.

Events for children included free donkey rides & an entertainer who taught spinning plates and unicycle riding, and later did a fire show.
Parents for Sports from Somers Town kindly joined us to run activities for mainly under 5's and our local firefighters brought their truck along.

We held a raffle, tombola, guess the cake weight & guess the number of sweets competitions. The money raised ensures that we will be able to run a similar event next year - we have to buy liability insurance to hold events, so even with the small grant from Camden Council, a certain amount of fun raising is necessary. We're indebted to local residents and businesses who donated prizes for the raffle & tombola.

Amongst those who donated items are :
Somerfield, JP Pharmacy -139 Camden High St,The Little Baker - 94 Camden High St, Woolworths, Sainsburys, Waterstones, Boots, 99p Shop, Marks & Spencer’s, Argos, Carphone Warehouse, Golden Lion Tavern, Royal College St, The Worlds End pub, George’s Café -Pratt St, Firat 2 groceries -Pratt St, Central Stationers, Vodafone Camden, Savers, Flickers Hair.

Thanks to all who came to join us on the day, it was certainly a wonderful meeting of our community!
