Party in the park beats the rain
This year's Party in the Park has been yet another triumph. The occasional rain was unable to dampen the atmosphere for the crowds of local people who came along to make the 2009 party another great day out.
Helping to make the event so much fun was a bouncy castle, real life ambulance and fire engine, along with everything from tree-side drumming lessons to face painting and t-shirt designing.
The Speaker of Hackney Council came along to draw numbers for the raffle - kindly supported by local businesses.
De Beauvoir's Safer Neighbourhood Police Team were also out in force - some even having their faces painted along with local kids.
Huge praise has to go to the DBA volunteers for their hours of organisation that have once again paid off brilliantly.
