First picnic proves a hit as Bartholomew Road neighbours share food, drink and stories

Published: July 28, 2011

NEIGHBOURS were brought together for the first time on Saturday when a Kentish Town street staged its inaugural picnic.

Families in Bartholomew Road shared food, drink and stories as they spent the afternoon enjoying tunes from the Villas Band.

Isky Gordon, chairman of Bartholomew Residents’ Association, which organised the event, said: “Everybody said it was really nice meeting the faces they have seen walking past in the street. The picnic will certainly be back next year.”
