West Ealing Family Fun Day
Hundreds turn out and make it a huge success
West Ealing Neighbours, local businesses and traders and the Council put on the first ever West Ealing Family Day last Saturday and the community turned out en masse.
Across the centre of West Ealing in Leeland Road, Melbourne Avenue and St James Avenue there were activities for all the family.
Leeland Road had a specially extended farmers’ market with apples as a theme ( Apple Day was on October 21st). There was an exhibition of over 100 rare and different varieties of apple, cider tasting, apple and spoon racing and an apple juicing demonstration
Melbourne Avenue was for food and entertainment with a stage set up for a variety of local music and dance events as well as children’s entertainment and food stalls
One of the organisers Diane Gill said " Wow what a great day today! We sold over 100 cups of our freshly pressed apple juice and all my 50 toffee apples were sold! We had loads of volunteers chopping, pressing, straining, selling, leafleting, chatting, laughing and generally enjoying themselves!''
The event was judged to be a great success and it's hoped the event it will become a regular fixture in the community calendar.
