APPLE bobbing and pavement art were among all the fun at the packed street party as part of the Old Isleworth Big Weekend.
Clear blue skies paved the way for the perfect family day out as swarms of people rushed to the All Saints' Church third annual street party, by the river, last Saturday, opened by the Mayor of Hounslow, councillor Sachin Gupta.
Children and adults attempted to conquer games on the Cathja barge and enjoyed a spread of food from stalls run by local community groups, as well as a barbecue, and some cold and fresh treats from ice cream to strawberries and cream.
More fun was packed in the surroundings of the church courtyard with activities including knitting and chocolate making, and photo displays.
Children were enthralled by the skills of a magician and had their face painted, with young people and adults entertained by local performers including live rock and a blues band.
The event helped raise funds for the Dutch barge moored on the Thames, which provides space for people who have experienced mental health problems to explore their creativity in a safe and supported environment.
The fun rolled over to Sunday where a royal themed heritage walk through Syon Park was followed by cakes, cream teas and coffee in the church courtyard.
