Roehampton Safer Neighbourhoods Team wanted to bring the whole community together with their partners to celebrate giving back for the London Week of peace.

On Saturday 25th September, police in Roehampton and partner organisations were on The Green, Danebury Ave for a family fun day.

The British Army brought their inflatable assault course. This fun and challenging course was tried out by many local youths. The London Fire Brigade carried out a chip pan fire display and showed people around the Fire unit. Positive futures from Arsenal football club ran a mini football tournament which was well attended and a lot of fun. Also supporting the event was the St Johns Ambulance, Police Specials and Police cadets from Wandsworth. Minstead Garden Church also ran games and face painting for the young children.

Sgt Mark McLeavery of Roehampton SNT said
"It was great to bring the community together in Roehampton with 300 people attending the green for the London week of peace fun day. It was important to bring our partners to Roehampton and give something back to the community we serve. The day was well attended and gave the youth a chance to complete an army assault course, speak to the emergency services and hear from the volunteer Police cadets about what it is like being a cadet on this borough. We received some great feedback from families who came to the day.”
