Hundreds of visitors enjoyed live music, a raffle, stalls and great food at a charity fun day at the weekend.
Northfield Avenue was festooned with balloons and bunting and came alive with music and children as the funday got into full swing on Saturday.
The event, organised by the Northfield Avenue Traders’ Association, is in aid of two charities: the Log Cabin for young people with additional needs, in Northfield Avenue, and Springhallow School for children with autism in Compton Close.
Organiser and owner of hairdressing salon, Aristocuts, Mary Sheehy said: “It was a great day. Hundreds of children and their families turned up. We haven't had a summer fun day for six years and so we thought it was about time we brought it back. The raffle was brilliant with prizes such as cheeses, freshly baked bread, haircuts and many more prizes all donated by the businesses on the Avenue. We're counting up all the money this week so we'll be announcing the total by the end of the week.”
Brian Davis of Parker and Sons bakers said: “The fun day was a fantastic success. We were very pleased that so many people turned up. All the our staff at Parkers bakery were dressed in Victorian costume and sold our traditionally made bread for one old penny. Over 200 loaves were sold this way. Customers and staff enjoyed the festivities and we look forward to the next 100 years baking in Ealing.”
Other businesses such as The Forester pub got involved with a Pimms tent and bands which included the Mobile Clones. There was also an acapella band and jazz musicians.
