Thirsty revellers guzzled more than 60 litres of Pimm's as Chiswick's Devonshire Road was transformed into a lawn for a street party on Saturday (September 13).

Live music, face-painting, games and cookery demonstrations were among the activities livening up the shopping parade throughout the day.

Other attractions included a dog agility course, run by Chiswick Pets, and a T-shirt design competition organised by Damsel Boutique.

The event, which has been running for many years, was organised by shopkeepers along the street to give something back to the community and raise money for charity while promoting their businesses.

 

Mike Moran, owner of Top Hat Cleaners, said at least £1,600 had been raised on the day for Cedars, which is based at Chiswick Methodist Church and runs activities for young people in and around Chiswick.

"It was a really busy day, probably helped by the weather, and there was some great music and lots of events taking place this year," he added.

"I had a customer in this morning who said although she's lived here for a year and has visited us before she learned about five new businesses in the road thanks to the fun day."
