All the fun of the Fair


The sun shone, the bunting fluttered, our fabulous new honesty stall designed by Public Works made its debut stocked with artichokes, broad beans and flowers and we had enough delicious home-made cakes to feed the neighbourhood several times over. Even our wildflowers made an appearance for the occasion. A big thank-you to everyone who helped, baked and visited, to the manufacturers and contractors for our new gate and honesty stall – and of course, to Community Spaces, London Borough of Newham and all of our other funders and supporters.
