Saturday 23rd September saw the sun shining on the first St Mary’s Estate Lightfoot Road Fun Day, which took place in Greig City Academy. The event was initiated and promoted by leading local residents and Nadya Enver and Jeannette, and featured food provided by Conrad Clarke of Bonding PHRU Food, a wide variety of children’s activities and football coaching.

Hornsey Liberal Democrat Councillor Errol Reid was successful in corralling support from both the Council’s Neighbourhood Management team and London & Quadrant Housing Trust.

Liberal Democrat MP Lynne Featherstone showed her support by coming along to see the facilities being set up. Resisting the temptation to climb the rigging of the children’s pirate ship, Lynne Featherstone said:

“This is a fantastic example of local residents celebrating and enjoying their local area. The organisers have worked very hard to put this event on, and the day shows what a great community spirit thrives here.”

Councillor Reid comments:

“I am very pleased to have been able to drum up support from both the Council and London and Quadrant. This was a great success for the local residents which we hope to build on and repeat next year. A huge thank you is due to all who helped to organise the event.”
