STALLS were rolled out at London's famous Spitalfields Market near Liverpool Street station for a community fair to showcase East End grassroots projects.

One of the projects was making kids soft toys like the inflatable giant dice that 12-month-old Oscar Russell is seen playing with (inset) at the Spitalfields Community Fair.

The projects were paid from the People's Fund which gave grants last year to 11 schemes in Tower Hamlets aimed at making a difference to communities.

The fair, which also included art exhibitions and live music, was the end result which 'showcased' how last year's ideas were turned into reality today.
