Despite the unsettled weather last month successful resident- organised fun days and street parties took place across Lambeth.

Early in August Portobello estate had a well attended funday organised by Joyce Bird and the local Tenants & Residents Association on the play ground site of Lakeview Road. Lambeth Play, a local voluntary organisation, brought along their mobile childrens play kit including a trampoline. Free ice cream, a bouncy castle, BBQ, facepainting, tea & cakes  and DJ-ing were amongst the attractions. Lambeth Living staff helped out and the local police and councillors joined in.

At the bank holiday weekend more than 200 people took part in the funday at  Woodvale estate including a  BBQ,   tombola & raffle, a bouncy castle, face-painting , tile decoration, cake decorating , egg and spoon races, skipping races and a children’s fancy dress competition. Cllr Jane Pickard judged the fancy dress contest with Lambeth Living’s representative,  Joanne Hall, and drew the raffle with help from a large group of children.  She thanked  Mary Hannigan and the committee for organising such a wonderful day: “It’s been a fantastic day with a great community feel,” she said.
