Jubilee Celebrations in West Hampstead

Big Lunch on West End Green on Saturday
Residents in West Hampstead and Fortune Green entered into the spirit of  the Jubilee weekend with street party celebrations.

On SaturdayWHeart held a Big Lunch on West End Green organised by Sally Bowman and her team of helpers and sponsored by Chelsea Square.  There was a bouncy castle and face painting for children, a cake competition, raffle with prizes donated by local businesses and Spanish dancing.  One of the highlights was a large black chicken handing out chicken wings from Nandos.

Also on Saturday, the Fordwych Road Residents' Association held their event in St Cuthbert's Church Hall, while on on Sunday residents of Glenbrook Road and Friends of Fortune Green all held Big Lunch events, despite the rain.  The Fortune Green event decamped into the Play Centre where at least 100 residents shared food and some entered the Bake Off competition.

Spanish Dancers at the Lymington Road street party
On Monday, MARA were lucky with their weather for their street party, and on Tuesday, Lymington Road was closed for the LRRA Celebration Streeet Party with two bouncy castles, a steel band, barbeque, more cakes  and Spanish dancers.

Well done all the organisers for helping us celebrate the Jubilee weekend with friends and neigh-bours. Our sincere apologies if we missed anyone in the West Hampstead area out!
