I don’t know how many people attended, but it seemed much busier than last year’s event and there were certainly more businesses and stalls participating.
The event is very much driven by the local traders, and a great example of what can be achieved with a little vision – few would look at Lavender Hill and think that style of event would work given the amount of traffic the road carries and the stretches of residential separating business parades. But if you were like me you had a great day wandering up and down Lavender Hill savouring the carnival atmosphere and a little too much of the food and drink on offer.
Congratulations to everyone who was involved in the organisation and management of the event on the day – but especially Anthony Laban, Emma Jane Clark and Lorinda Freint.
They’ve certainly set a high standard for next year!
