Festival goers showcase their costumes at Queen’s Park extravaganza

Hundreds of festival-goers descended on Queens Park Community School for its annual carnival on Saturday.

Youngsters took part in a colourful parade showcasing costumes made by Harlesden costume designers, Mahogany.

Fitter pupils took part in a 5k fun run around surrounding streets in the hope to raise �5,000.

Steve Cripps, deputy headteacher, said: “It was tremendous. We are a community school and this is a good way to bring the community together.

“There were lots of stalls including food from Spice Caravan whose cooks were trained here.

“It is also an opportunity to celebrate what we have achieved throughout the school year. I would like to thank English teacher, Alison Hook and parents Diane Thomas and Susan Kennedy who organised the whole event.”
