Thank you to everyone who came and made it a really lovely afternoon.
We had a great turn out on Saturday 22 August, helped by the weather and some enthusiastic volunteers. We must have welcomed at least 80 – 100 people over the course of the afternoon including loads and loads of our smaller sized residents who took full advantage of the free bouncy castle. It was lovely to meet whole generations of families – from a lady who has lived in Charlton for nearly 50 years to one of our very youngest residents who is only 10 weeks old. The barbecue was at full blast all afternoon and the sweets, cakes, crisps and cold drinks were quickly snapped up.
Everyone who came thought it was a great idea and thoroughly enjoyed getting to know their neighbours or catching up with friends they’ve known for years.
