PUBLISHED: 15:00 21 August 2018
Residents held a Fun Day on a beloved Rainham open space days after Havering Council's planning committee approved an application for 30 new homes to be built on the area.
Families and friends at Dovers Farm Estate enjoyed another one of their regular Fun Days on Sunday, August 19.
Councillor Graham Williamson said: “It was good to see that a part of Havering hasn’t lost its community spirit as local residents had a great time.
“It would be a crying shame if that spirit were lost should the Green be given over to an overdevelopment as it plays such an important role in bringing the community together.”
Residents enjoyed live music from Jack Harris, facepainting, hook-a-duck games, Tug o’ War, a wet sponge board and a bric-a-brac stall.
Matt Stanton, secretary of the Dovers Farm Estate Green committee added: “Everyone had a lovely time and we intend to keep on having community events despite the onslaught from the Town Hall.”
