Christmas cheer has been amplified in Romford thanks to the arrival of a free funfair.
The event at Romford Market, organised by Havering Council, kicked off on December 15.
Providing plenty of fun to Havering families in the lead up to Christmas Day, the funfair will run from 10am until 4pm, up until Christmas Eve, when it will close an hour earlier at 3pm.
The mini funfair offers a mix of classic and new rides such as a fun house, mini bumper cars, train ride, crazy cars, tea cups, Miami trip and cliff-hanger ride.
Savoury snacks, including hot dogs and burgers, can be ordered from a stall at the funfair, and treats such as toffee apples and candy floss are also available to buy.
If anyone is looking for a last-minute Christmas tree before the big day, there is an opportunity around the corner from the funfair.
Council leader Damian White said: “The free attractions in our historic Romford Market are there to provide families in Havering a much needed escape and some festive cheer after what’s been another very difficult year.

“However, please only visit if you are feeling well and feel comfortable to do so.
"We ask residents to take a lateral flow test before visiting, social distance from people they don’t know, use hand sanitiser, and wear a face covering when among crowds. Let’s do our bit to celebrate Christmas safely.”
