Thank you to everyone who made it out to our lovely fundraising banquet last Thursday evening and to the grand opening of the Mudchute Ack Ack Gun and street party on Saturday! It has been a very busy, but exciting few days of festivities and we hope you all enjoyed yourselves (despite the rather variable weather!). The courtyard was beautifully transformed into a gorgeous summery venue! More photos of the celebrations on the next page!

The week’s festivities began with Thursday night’s 2012 Mudchute Banquet which was a wonderful 1940s themed affair with some fantastic themed outfits and ’40s tunes from the Swinging Sweethearts. It was a wonderful evening despite the squally weather and a big thank you to all who took part and donated so generously to the Mudchute Association! See more photos in our flickr set for the night.

Saturday’s street party enjoyed a bit of sunshine and marked the official opening of the Ack Ack gun! In addition to the grand opening, it was a great family day out and we hope you all enjoyed the afternoon! There were lots of cakes, games and even a wool spinning demonstration in the barn. More photos from the street party on flickr.
