Picnic in the Park

  Since 2000, our four roads have held three street parties, eleven Picnics in the Park and two Parties at the Pub.  For the last two  years, we have had two excellent Parties at the Pub which took place at the Sebright Arms, our wonderful local community pub.   2017 saw a return to having a Picnic in the Park on the Byng Road rugby field.   It took place on Saturday, 17th June and featured the usual activities and attractions, such as Punch and Judy, 5-a-side football, bouncy castle, balloon modelling, face painting, inter-road game, etc.  Our local bands played, namely Hokum, Front Rumours (see picture) and the duo Ella and Naz. read more...
