THOUSANDS of people are expected to turn out for a day packed with entertainment and activities at an annual summer street event.
Organisers, local crafters, traders and performers of the Ruislip Manor Summer Fun Day are counting down the days until the action-packed event on July 6.
As well as the usual array of fairground rides, vintage police cars and 70 charity and food stalls that will fill the pavements of Victoria Road, Ruislip Manor, this year will feature new and exciting entertainment stands for children.
Four racing car simulator games, a golf gazebo and a new runaway alligator ride will ensure the kids are kept entertained for hours.
The stage introduced at last year’s fun day will be back in Shenley Avenue again, showcasing some of the borough’s best talent including singer Millie Manders, female barbershop group Capital Connections, West End child stars the Penny Lane Singers and J Stars and Special Stars cheerleading groups from Hayes and Hillingdon.
Youngsters are encouraged to dress up as Batman for the day, so get making those outfits if you want to have your picture taken with the Caped Crusader’s Batmobile, which will be sent in from the London Motor Museum.
Ruislip Manor photographer Louie Donovan will be photographing the event, and Ruislip Scout Group will be serving barbecue food.
The Ruislip Manor Summer Fun Day, organised by Ruislip Manor Chamber of Commerce, sponsored by Lawrence Rand Estate Agents and funded by Hillingdon Council and the Mayor of London, runs from 11am to 6pm on July 6 and is free to attend.
Shenley Avenue and Linden Avenue in Ruislip Manor will be closed to traffic during the day.
