Last week Farleigh Road held a street party as part of the national ‘Big Lunch’ campaign (http://www.thebiglunch.com/)
The road was shut, residents of all ages and nationalities pulled together to create a truly awesome feast and the street was transformed for a day.
I took the liberty of carrying furniture and plants from my front room into the street – happy days.
I am lucky to live on such an amazing street – full of diversity and life – a little positivity can go a long way.

I decided it needed upgrading as we kept running out of water and after some surfing I found a source of recycled plastic food drums/barrels from this gem of a place in Wales – http://www.dvfuels.co.uk/category.asp?catID=4
Delivery worked out cheapest when buying a palette of eight so I got eight and found others to buy them using the local Transition Town Hackney mailing list.
Joe and I had a fun day plumbing them into the existing water butt. Nearly got the hang of using the power drill now!
