Residents on one Brixton street made the most of the magnificent weather on Saturday with their annual street party.
As talented bands from Leander Road played their music, waterbombs and a fire hose rained down to cool enthusiastic party goers of all ages.
The bash started at midday, when neighbours gathered in front of their houses to share food, drinks and a bit of community spirit.
One of the organisers, James Cornish, told the Blog: “It was wonderful to see so many neighbours getting involved and having lots of fun together.
“Holding this party and our other events has really pulled the street together. We all know ten times as many of our neighbours as we did only a couple of years ago.”
The party got a cooling visit from a fire engine based at Brixton fire station. Firefighters delighted children by soaking them with jets of water from a fire hose. Local MP Chuka MP also popped by on his tour of the days school fairs and street parties.
James added: “The weather was incredible, there were eight great bands, queues for the jerk and beer, water games for the kids and even tug of war. Roll on next year.”
