A day in the sun at the Rushey Green Festival

Sunday the 8th June was an absolute scorcher and two members of the recycling team braved the heat to man a stall at the Rushey Green Festival that took place at the Ladywell Arena.

Saved by the shade!

Funded by the Rushey Green Ward Assembly and sponsored by Barratts Homes, Hunters Estates  and L&Q the festival was completely organised and hosted by the Rushey Green Time Bank. It was designed to be a family friendly community event with fun activities (and food!) to gather residents for a celebration of local talent and opportunities to meet other local groups and people.

You could even get your bike fixed and learn something more Council services and what’s going on in the ward.

Over 1500 people came along and were entertained by multiple performers  –  ‘Let’s Swing’, ‘Wuntanara’, ‘Heart of Steel’ and Alan Dunn ( from Bob Geldof Band/Boomtown Rats) accompanied by Kirsten Hammond.
