Essex Tribute Fest special.
The weekend saw thousands of people descend onto Harrow Lodge Park in Hornchurch to attend Havering Mind’s Essex Tribute Fest. The sun shone and the crowds arrived to enjoy live music, fantastic stalls, food zones and fun fair rides for the children.
From vintage classic cars, to a punch and Judy man, alongside Havering’s very own Elvis, Chris Vegas wowing his spectators.
Community Hospital radio Bedrock were on hand to provide great tracks for the crowds, and thanks to UK Garrison Star War’s Storm Troopers and Chewbacca were patrolling the park having their picture taken with many families.
Well done to the Met the police who provided police horses, officers from the Territorial Support Unit and Havering Police Cadets run by PC Anthony Kiddle. They all engaged brilliantly with the crowds who were eager to come and talk to them and see the hard work they do in our communities. Children had the opportunity to stroke the beautiful horses and try on some of the body armour police use during riots.
This event was much needed for our community after the very difficult lock down periods the country has faced. Well done to Havering Mind’s Ciaran White and his team of volunteers who organised this fantastic event that was able to provide much needed fun and put a smile on all our faces.
