Roe Green Village hold their annual party

Kingsbury residents enjoy a day of festivities and stalls

Residents in a conservation area of Kingsbury were celebrating this week after sunny skies finally enabled them to hold their annual village party.

The celebration, in Roe Green Village, which has been running since 1977, consists of a day of festivities and stalls in The Green in Roe Lane.

The day was originally scheduled for July but persistent rain stopped the party from being held until now.

Deborah Nyman, a member of Roe Green Village Resident’s Association, who helped organise the day told the Times the day was a great success.

She said: “This was Village Day, Take Two 2012 where the weather stayed dry and resulted in a great turn out.”

Among the activities at the celebration on September 1 included a Zumba session, traditional punch and judy shows and stalls selling home made goods.

Mrs Nyman added: “Friends of residents and people who visit from outside the area always remark how unique the village is and how lucky we are to belong to this community.

“It takes hard work to keep it going but it is well worth it and long may it continue.”
