About 3,000 people turned out to the annual event which included a football championship hosted by West Ham United’s community sports trust.

The fair had had to be put back a week following forecasts of heavy rain and the sporadic showers that did fall on the rescheduled date did little to disrupt spirits.

Key attractions at the event, organised by the Stifford Centre and held in Stepney Green park, included an array of streetfood and a wide variety of free workshops.

Children enjoyed taking part in the egg and spoon races and devouring ice cream.
