George Lane was partially closed and transformed into a radiant hub of activity on 18 June as residents and visitors gathered for South Woodford’s second annual summer market.

“There was a wonderful atmosphere with plenty going on. There were two magic shows, musical performances, a popular face painter and an ecological crafting stall in the Galleria… The event was a testament to the remarkable contributions of residents, businesses, schools, charities and Redbridge Council, all of whom joined forces to make this day truly memorable,” said a spokesperson for the South Woodford Society, which organised the event.

Plans are now underway to build on the success. “Looking ahead, our shared vision is to grow the summer market and Christmas lights switch-on event, transforming them into annual fixtures on our local community calendar.”
