Stonecot Neighbourhood Watch Sutton Common

'Picnic in the Park' Saturday 21 May 2016

Friends of Sutton Common Park 

The annual Neighbourhood Watch ‘Picnic in the Park’ held on the 21st May was the most successful yet. Luckily the rain just about held off and the event was attended by hundreds of local residents including the newly elected MP, Paul Scully.

Glenthorne High School provided the majority of the entertainment which was very well received and they are gifted with some very talented musicians and singers.

Our local safer neighbourhood police team were also out in force along with some police cadets, dog handlers and the very popular fire brigade engine and crew.

The territorial army had a very impressive display which included a number of vehicles with camouflage nets and the Premier Sports Team were kept very busy with their archery.

New to the event was a local “ Burger Van” called the “Food Pod” which provided some excellent refreshments at a very reasonable price which again proved to be very popular indeed.

Norman Summerfield and his committee are to be congratulated for their hard work in organising this event.
