Hundreds of Kingsmead residents, along with others from the wider community, came together for Daubeney Fields’ 4th annual Fun Day.
With support from Sanctuary Housing and Hackney Council funding, the event – organised by the King’s Park Ward Forum, Daubeney Fields Forever park user group and Hackney March Adventure Playground staff – saw a range of entertainment including circus skills, face painting, hook-a-duck, ‘jarbola’, the Hackney Play Bus and more.
Hackney Council’s Sports Development Team ran a host of sporting activities and Hackney Marsh Adventure Playground opened its facilities up to all on the day.
Adults weren’t left out either with free bike repairs and massages on offer, a free foraging walk run by EcoActive, and a range of information, food and craft stalls.
In addition to the funding from Sanctuary and the Council, the day was made possible by the generosity of local residents who volunteered their time, as well as donations from local businesses.
Sophie Lejeune-Peggie, Sanctuary’s neighbourhood partnerships manager, said: “It’s been great working with King’s Park Ward Forum to deliver this fantastic community-led event.
“The Fun Day is a great way to bring together Kingsmead residents and support the development of this tightly-knit community.”
