A Christmas extravaganza in two parks got everyone in the festive mood at the weekend.

Raphael Park, Main Road, Romford, hosted a fair with stalls, children’s rides, food and drink as well as live music at the band stand from The Barking Concert Band and Funky Voices.

While in Lodge Farm Park, Lodge Avenue, Romford, families were also able to ride on one of Havering Miniature Railway Club’s trains to Santa’s grotto where they got to meet the man himself, receive a goodie bag and enjoy arts and crafts.

Around 1,000 people attended the fun festive event and Raphael Park manager Taylor Smyth-Richards says he hopes to hold it again next year.

He said: “It was a wonderful day and to hear people saying that they had fun was definitely a key moment for me.

“It was tiring but enjoyable!”
