More than 150 residents in Gidea Park gathered for a street party to celebrate “community spirit” and a couple’s 70th wedding anniversary.
People in Links Avenue and Hockley Drive have formed a new residents group in an attempt to combat crime in their area.
They held a street party with a barbecue and DJ on Saturday, July 6.
Louise Nash from Hockley Drive told the Recorder: "[The group] has been very successful and we have had meetings with the local police, Romford MP Andrew Rosindell, local councillors and the neighbourhood watch.
"It has been a great way to meet neighbours face to face in times where everyone leads busy lives.
