Labour councillors visit Bolney Meadow fun day

The Councillors for Stockwell and Oval, Alex Bigham and Jack Hopkins both attended the community fun day organised on the Bolney Meadow Estate, which crosses the border of both wards on Saturday 4 September.

The event was organised by the housing association Presentation, now part of the Notting Hill Group for local residents to get together and enjoy fun activities such as Tai Chi, facepainting, jewellery making and henna. Many organisations were there including the police, Wates construction, St John's Ambulance, Lambeth council's family division as well as community groups and church organisations.

Entertainment was on hand from local singers, and kids could enjoy a bouncy castle and a chance to see a selection of animals from the Vauxhall City Farm. There were also plans being discussed to involve more local workers in the reconstruction of the estate, which will provide new security entrances as well as internal refurbishment.

Cllr Bigham said "it was a pleasure to see so many residents enjoying themselves with their neighbours and getting into the spirit of the day. Congratulations to the organisers for putting on another fun packed day."
