Thackeray Street Family Street Party: Sunday 18 September 2011

Thackeray Street Party organised by the Kensington Court Residents Association is a wonderful example of local businesses and residents getting together to enjoy a marvellous Sunday afternoon family party.
Fantastic food from Otteomezzo, Montparnasse Cafe and a Sausage Sizzle sponsored by Gallery 19; The Builder’s Arms provided drinks; Lumina and Thackerays sponsored the music; The Milestone Hotel sponsored the children’s activities with General Manager Andrew Pike on hand judging the colouring competition; Kall Kwik provided the invitations and the KCRA committee with some local residents responsible for the organisation.
Many local businesses and retailers were very generous with raffle donations and proceeds raised will again go to the Knightsbridge Group of Riding for the Disabled. Although the rain poured exactly at 5.00 pm. (the start time), it gave way to a nice sunny evening, and the turnout was tremendous.  Congratulations to all involved for a most successful family street party.
