As a regular visitor to Mill Road I love mooching around its welcoming cafes, restaurants, the oriental supermarkets, Arabic food stores and vintage shops.
Saturday was a brilliant celebration of the heart of its vibrant community, with the road closed off to traffic the public meandered up and down taking in the wonderful sights and sounds. Bands seemed to pop up out of nowhere to create uplifting music, street performers entertained while the food stalls fed the hungry revellers. There was big emphasis on independent local crafters with plenty of Christmas shopping opportunities in every community centre in the area.
It was the perfect start to the Festive Season with the scent of mulled wine filling the air and everyone's hearts! What a wonderful afternoon!
