Portobello Square residents celebrated the re-connection of their new homes to the wider Kensington community with a street fete on Sunday 26 June 2016. Over 300 attendees were entertained by music and a variety of live performers, and played fun traditional games. The event was a joint collaboration with the Venture Centre to showcase some of the great services and activities available on your doorstep.
The focus of the celebration was Bonchurch Road, a new road which has restored the original Victorian street patterns, re-connecting residents and their new homes with the nearby Portobello Road and surrounding area.
Events like these are only possible with the active support of residents and colleagues. We would like to thank the Wornington Green Community Group, the Residents’ Steering Group, who helped to bring the community and neighbours together for a great day and the Tip Top Dance School and Healthy Life for You for taking part in the event. A special mention also to the North Kensington Women’s Textile Group who made the lovely bunting for the fete and a thank you to Neilo Rodrigues for taking part in the event.
