STREET PARTY ON SUNDAY: MERVAN RD FROM 12 NOON

street_party_2013_3 (1)Yes, at last, the Effra Street party is this Sunday, 16th June in Mervan Road. Bring a dish to share, together with cutlery and a chair at 12 noon and sit down and eat with your neighbours.

Later on there’ll be music, poetry and (maybe) dancing. This is a community party for everyone who lives in the grid of streets covered by this website – from Saltoun Road to Effra Parade. The idea is simply to have a bit of fun.

If you want to help out, we’ll be setting up from around 9am – gazebos, kids outdoor toys, craft materials and barbeques particularly welcome.

If you want to perform on the stage, drop us an email at effrablog[at]gmail.com or just turn up looking keen.

If there’s an activity you like doing, just come and do it.

Health and Safety announcement: while there will be activities for the children, grown-ups need to be responsible for their own youngsters at all times.

Thanks to Lambeth Community Fund and London Community Foundation for their support for this event.
