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."
