Forward Newington World Day
18 January 2023
1st October 2022 saw Pasley Park transformed into a Community Festival. While David pumped out tunes, under a celestial blue sky, stalls lined the centre path, selling goods such as Irish Sea Moss, beauty products, homemade jams and chutneys, jewellery, soft toys, plants together with knitted and crocheted items produced by the talented members of Newington TRA, or offered information from organisations such as the Sickle Cell Society, The Giving Lab and Southwark Parks.
The Oli Juste Dog Show
The Hound Hut in Kennington brought their supply of canine goods and came to support the Oli Juste dog show, run this year by Siriol and Trevor, and it proved as popular as ever.
The drummers drummed and danced and were joined by members of the audience.
Food and Beverage
Actually, the beer and rum punches, rather than water, came in for high praise, as did the games and activities organised in the tradition of old pubs.
Friends of Pasley Park and Southwark Kaleidoscope joined forces this year to produce this event, bringing together the local community to showcase the talents, interests and diversity abundant in Walworth, in a fun and enjoyable atmosphere and to bring to notice some history of the area too. Oh, and the sun shone all day long on Pasley Park and highlighted how lucky we are to live in such a rich and diverse community.
