Yet again the sun shone for our annual fete on Saturday 1st September and a great day was had by the many who came to enjoy themselves, not to mention all the dogs who came to take part in the dog show. The coconut shy has never been busier, the plant and book stalls had record days, the tea tent and the Punch and Judy show proved as popular as ever, the beer, Pimms and cider stall was drunk dry.
Huge thanks are due to all those involved in organising the event and those local residents who helped out on the day. And special thanks to The Neighbourhood Vet for organising the Dog Show, to Roy Brooks for their sponsorship, and to all the local businesses and residents who donated cakes for the Friend of Peckham Rye Park Tea Tent. As always, the money made by the fete will go towards new projects that benefit the Park and Common and on the maintenance of the Community Garden.
The 2019 fete will take place on Saturday 7th September.
