Lynne Featherstone presents prizes at local May Day street party

Lynne Featherstone MP presenting the winning petowner with a rosette. Lynne Featherstone MP on Sunday attended a maypole dance and street party on Hillfield Park in Muswell Hill. This year, it included a bake off judged by Maison Blanc, a hulahoopathon, a tug of war and maypole dancing.

The Liberal Democrat MP gave a short speech praising the residents and organisers of the street party, which has become an established annual event.

The MP for Hornsey and Wood Green then presented rosettes to the winners of the ‘best pet’ competition. The runners up included dogs and a hamster (who sat on the rosette to pose for the photo!) The local MP presented the winning rosette to the pet owner – as the winning cat, Boris, had disappeared!

After the party, Lynne Featherstone MP commented:

“I had a great time at the street party, which is always so well organised and attended by the local residents.

“It’s fantastic to see a community come together and take part in these fun activities. I was very happy to present the best pet prizes – even though the winner absconded before the prize giving ceremony!

“I look forward to next year’s party.”
