Hundreds of patriotic residents flocked to Romford Market at the weekend to celebrate St George’s Day.

It was a busy day on Saturday, April 21, with fun activities and events taking place to entertain families, shoppers and passers-by.

Those who attended were treated to a host of entertainment from the British Legion and Haverettes marching bands, to giant Beefeaters and Punch and Judy shows.

Romford’s Town Crier Ashley Powell was also around and in full voice encouraging everyone to get into the spirit.

The market was also decorated in red and white bunting, providing a patriotic backdrop for the festivities.

Director of neighbourhoods Steve Moore said: “St George’s Day is always one of the busiest and best days in the market, and this year was no exception.

“Havering has once again done St George proud, with people coming from far and wide to celebrate.”
