Party in the Park
In June every year since 1997, the Residents Association has put on a successful community party, with an average attendance of over 150. Held in Penn Road Gardens, this is an open event for residents of Penn Road and the local area on the last Saturday of June, in the late afternoon.
Once Lockdown is eased sufficiently, we will be looking at what kind of community event will be allowed and plan accordingly.
The Gardens are a perfect setting, with stalls, children's activities, food, music, a raffle and a main show. It has become quite a fixture for the local neighbourhood and we get great feedback from the many who attend. It's helped bring a good sense of community to the area and attention to this precious open space in a busy borough.
Run as a not-for-profit afternoon, any money made is used to keep costs down the following year and buy equipment and materials.
