Although it wasn’t bright sunshine today, the rain stayed away and the community came out in full force for the second day of the Havering Show.

Crowds gathered at Harrow Lodge Park, Hornchurch, to once again enjoy the annual show filled with fun fair rides, stalls, games and plenty of live music.

One show-goer Katie Reynolds, 37, said: “We didn’t want to come yesterday because of the rain but glad it held off today.

“It’s been amazing so far! It’s always a great way to spend the bank holiday.”

To celebrate the show’s 40th anniversary, acts from the 90s and 00s came out to entertain everyone on the main stage.

George Michael tribute act Andrew Browning and house music group Baby D were among the performers but the headliner was 00s favourite S Club Party made up of Jo O’Meara, Tina Barrett and Bradley McIntosh.

From Don’t Stop Movin’ and You’re My Number One, to Never Had a Dream Come True and Reach, crowds were thrilled to sing-along with the band.

More on the show will feature in this week’s Recorder.
