Stockwell Festival - Fun day out for all

Local Labour Councillors Pete Bowyer, Tina Valcarcel and Rachel Heywood, along with Stockwell action team member Alex Bigham joined the Mayor of Lambeth, Christopher Wellbelove at the Stockwell Festival today.

This year's festival was combined with the first ever Stockwell Expo, a chance for people from our diverse communities to come together, and have their say in how local services are run.

But it wasn't all the serious business of democratic engagement course. People flocked to the event, held in Larkhall Park and organised by the Stockwell Partnership to enjoy tasty food, great music and the perenially popular pineapple parade.

Cllr Pete Bowyer said "It was great to meet and talk to so many people from Stockwell and elsewhere. It's brilliant to see the community standing up for itself, as well as enjoying a fun family day out."

Alex Bigham said "As well as listening to some fantastic music and enjoying the festival atmosphere, this was a great opportunity to meet some of our hard working public servants including the local NHS, the police, Lambeth council and charities. Congratulations to all the organisers from Lambeth and the Stockwell Partnership for another great event."

I totally agree with the idea of having community festivals, meeting the community, local charities and representatives.

But I wasn’t impressed with the organisation. That praise aired about the success of the festival is either wishful thinking, blindness or pulling the wool over people’s eyes.

As to communities, you’ve utterly failed to create a community spirit; bringing people together. There are no communities in Stockwell: you have individuals that fear each other, and lock themselves up indoors when it gets dark for fear of the morlocks. You might end up in the gutter bleeding to death like when you kill a lamb.

Community and cultural representation at the festival: Well, I didn’t see anything.

Council services and support or information for the communities: nothing worth mentioning.

Entertainment for the kids: where were the bouncy castles, merry-go-rounds, dodgems?

Food? Not worth mentioning.

I’d be very happy if I could make positive comments about the festival, but you haven’t made the grade, and I’m not a flatterer. That’s not me. I’d rate it 3 over 10.

The people of Stockwell deserves much better then that.

Spot on with this write-up, I truly think this website needs much more consideration. I’ll probably be again to read much more, thanks for that info.

There are certainly a lot of details like that to take into consideration. That is a great point to bring up. I offer the thoughts above as general inspiration but clearly there are questions like the one you bring up where the most important thing will be working in honest good faith. I don?t know if best practices have emerged around things like that, but I am sure that your job is clearly identified as a fair game. Both boys and girls feel the impact of just a moment’s pleasure, for the rest of their lives.
