Street party 2012 - The pictures!

Last Sunday saw yet another fantastic street party. It was great to see so many people there with family and friends, and we welcomed several new residents who'd just moved in as well as neighbours from streets nearby. Lots of delicious food was brought, with a particularly extensive cake section, the barbecue was on the go all day, the amazing Street Party Band entertained us with all styles of music, the Olympic Hopping Match got lots of people on their feet.

The theme this year was "Celebrating London" because it's London's big year in lots of ways - this can involve London history including the Dickens bicentenary, the Olympics and Paralympics, multicultural London...

A really big thank you to all the people who helped organise and to the local businesses for their support. Here are some pictures of the day. A really big thank you to Roger Kynaston for the photos.
