Community breaks bread together at the Charteris Road Big Lunch
Live music, international cuisine and stalls kept the crowd entertained
The rain didn’t dampen spirits at the Charteris Road Big Lunch street party, where food stalls and live music kept the crowds entertained.
Dozens of residents gathered in Kilburn on Sunday to enjoy an array of international cuisine.
And many worked of the grub afterwards by trying their hand at the badminton and table tennis classes put on with the help of the nearby Charteris Sports Centre, which residents have been battling to save.
While others slipped on their dancing shoes and listened to the live music performances.

Launched in 2009 by the Eden Project, the Big Lunch aims to get as many people across the country to break bread with their neighbours in a simple act of community, friendship and fun.
Organisers estimate that more than a million people up and down the UK take part in it this year.
The Charteris big Lunch was organised by the Brent Eleven Streets Residents Association.
