The deputy Mayor joined hundreds of adults and children for a fun filled day of face painting, crafts and cupcakes in the sunshine.

Celebrating 25 years since they first opened, Crafty Arts, in Bryant Avenue, Romford, decided to host a summer fun day to mark the occasion.

Throughout the day people took part workshops which ranged from card making and paper crafting to knitting and crochet, whilst in the Kids Zone youngsters helped paint a giant comic.

The arts and craft supplier was also awarded a special birthday plaque to mark their 25 year anniversary.

“There were a lot of people that stayed for half the day,” said Daniella Payet, Crafty Arts event and workshops organiser. “We also had lots of lovely families come down for three to four hours which was brilliant.”

“We just want to say a big thank you to all our supporters and customers,” Daniella, 34, added.
