Sunday last (7 June) proved an amazing day – both for the great sunny weather but also in SE16 for the packed park full of families enjoying a shared picnic in King George’s Field. The day was organised by a dedicated team of volunteers who had been working away with the Council and local businesses since March. All the kids were welcome to take part in activities ranging from volleyball to face painting, football to French cricket. At the same time, neighbours from across the area got to know each other over picnic goodies. About 350 people came along during the afternoon (13:00-16:00) and the whole day was blessed with fantastic sunshine.
Thank you to all those who contributed to a successful day and especially to those who planned and plotted for months to make it happen. If you would like to see another next year, please do get in touch and you can join the planning group. Just email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will link you up.
