Colindale Gardens residents and neighbours celebrated the warm weather at their fourth annual Summer Fair last weekend.

Highlights of the day included a dance performance from local Indian dance troupe, Nritylaap, a musical performance from singer Senna and an art workshop by Esperanza Walsh who currently has an exhibit at Chipping Norton Library.

Running from 10am – 4pm, the free community event was organised by the Colindale Gardens Social Committee. The Summer Fair was one of the first events held by the group since being formed in 2020 and has continued to grow each year.

Kamal Hersh, Chairman of the Colindale Gardens Social Committee, said: “It was great to have members of the local community join us for our fourth Summer Fair! It is great to live in such a supportive community and communal events like these really enhance the experience.

“I’d like to thank all of the residents who volunteered their time to make this year’s Summer Fair the best one yet especially Kitty D’costa, Diki Chan, Anu Chhabra and Debora Jardim. I’d also like to thank the team at Colindale Gardens for their generous donation towards the event and for their support in facilitating community events and activities throughout the year.”
