The Forest Gate Carnival, a yearly event which takes place about 5 minutes from our home took place a couple of weeks ago (on 10th July 2010). It was a lovely, hot and sunny day. There were plenty of stalls, people, singing and dancing. The choir that I am in, Forest Voices sang a few songs, including singing some songs with Godwin Road School Choir (see first picture below); all led by Jenny Beeching. All in all, it was a very enjoyable event. There was even a Tea Dance at the church at the top of the road.
