Rescheduled Stepney Green fair to take place on Sunday

PUBLISHED: 12:18 12 August 2014 | UPDATED: 12:18 12 August 2014

The rescheduled Stepney Green fair will take place on Sunday.

The popular annual event was supposed to take place last weekend but had to be cancelled due to the heavy rain.

Key attractions at this year’s event will include a football championship hosted by West Ham United’s community sports trust, an opportunity to try capoeira or fruit carving and a traditional egg and spoon race.

An array of streetfood from Bengali and Indian to Lebanese and Vietnamese will also be on offer alongside a range of craft stalls including jewellery and fashion.

Tower Hamlets’ community organisations will be on hand to provide advice, information and demonstrations of a range of services from tips for employment to keeping healthy.

The fair, organised by the Stifford Centre and held in Stepney Green Park, will take place from 12pm to 7pm.

Last year the fair attracted more than 3,000 people.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
