Hackney: Reclaiming The Streets In Pictures

A Community Tea Party was recently held on Clarence Road, one of the worst affected areas in Hackney, during last week’s riots.  Local residents, young and old came out for a cuppa! Here are a few images from the day. Full story from the evening: Hackney: It’s All About Community

It was about the the folks, who lived on Clarence Road and helping Siva, who had lost his shop as result of the looting

 

Preparations are on the way for the evening...

 

The local vicar from St John Church talking to a lady who was helping on the day

 

Local residence and volunteers still helping to set up...

 

Siva's story, still under repairs...

 

Community spirit in action

Pretty sure they didn't run out of cake 🙂

 

The crowd gets bigger

 

The young ones were out there too

 

As a journalist interviews Adam from Kidulthood and Adulthood, the young ones look on and intensely, I must say...
