Community comes together for North Harrow Street Festival
Families enjoyed a summer street festival with live music and stalls aimed at building a sense of community.
More than 500 people attended the annual North Harrow festival on Saturday July 5, organised by the North Harrow Community Partnership.
The day included performances from Morris dancers, Indian drummers, buskers and the St John Fisher School Chamber Choir.
There were also stalls from community groups, North Harrow businesses and faith groups dotted along Pinner Road and other streets in the area.
Chairman of the community partnership Richard Reid said: “The whole event went extremely well and it was very well attended.
"The weather was very kind to us and it was great to see so many families down there on the day.
“The whole community partnership is thoroughly pleased with how the event went and we hope it will encourage more people to visit North Harrow in the future.
“I think the event as a whole shows North Harrow is moving in the right direction and the people who live here and the businesses are really coming together as a community.
“We are a very diverse area and we are all leaning about the different cultures of North Harrow. We hope to build on this year’s event to have a bigger and better festival next year.”
Councillor for Headstone North Janet Mote, who manned a stall on the day, said: “The whole festival was marvellous and there were so many people enjoying themselves.
“It was fantastic to see North Harrow so busy and to see so many families out having fun at the festival.”
Nower Hill School, in George V Avenue, were among the stall holders showcasing experiments from their science and art departments.
The North Harrow Community Partnership is a voluntary organisation of people living in the area, businesses, schools and faith groups aiming to create a sense of community in North Harrow.
