Over 500 Colindale residents gathered at Heybourne Park open space last weekend to take advantage of the Grahame Park festival.
However, the red-hot temperatures made Heybourne Park feel more like Greece than Grahame Park!
The Grahame Park festival is led on by Genesis Housing Association, who is managing the regeneration of the Grahame Park Estate.
The free event included ‘giant’ games, music, entertainment and other fun events for all the family.
The Grahame Park festival also gives residents the opportunity to find out about services they can access in the area, such as work and training and resident involvement.
As well as Barnet Homes, a wide range of other local organisations took part in the day, including the RAF Museum and Colindale Community Trust.
The theme of the event was, ‘Looking back, flying forward’, in celebration of the Royal Air Force’s (RAF) upcoming centenary. The RAF Museum worked closely with the event organisers to set up a range of fun activities, including an assault course and the opportunity to have a photo alongside a jet engine.
The Mayor of Barnet, Councillor Brian Salinger, also attended and joined in with the lovely family atmosphere at the festival.
Grahame Park is one of Barnet’s largest regeneration schemes and is led by Genesis in partnership with Barnet Council and Countryside Properties PLC.
