Schoolchildren had their last taste of the summer holidays in east London before returning to school today with fun days on two housing estates.
The fun days were held on the West Ferry estate on the Isle of Dogs and on the Bede Estate in Mile End organised through Eastend Homes’ community fund.
Sue Blunden turned Cahir Street into a West Ferry fun park for the day, with help from caretaker Lee, entertaining children with clowns, bubble making, face painting and a bouncy castle.
The fun continued at Wager Street Mile in End organised by Bede Estate residents.
The fun days were part of an annual summer scheme bringing youngsters and older residents together with games and toy share twice weekly during school holidays.
