Getting Together in Greenwich

Visitors to the latest Greenwich Great Get Together community event may have had to deal with a bit of a downpour on the day, but it didn't dampen their spirits in the slightest. People from all over the borough and beyond came and had a day full of fun, information and entertainment. There was something for everyone including dog handling and football demonstrations, live music, craft workshops, bouncy castle and trampoline prize draw to win tickets to see Kylie Minogue at the O2.

The latest in the series of Great Get Togethers hosted by Greenwich Council was held in Sutcliffe Park, Eltham and this was also the first of a number of summer events in the LSCP summer campaigns programme. Children were queuing up to visit the popular LSCP facepainter, while staff spoke to their parents and other visitors about the road safety benefits of safety cameras.

Christine Fitzgerald, LSCP Road Safety Communications Manager, said "The Greenwich Great Get Together has been a fantastic success. Not only have the public enjoyed the day and learnt more about the opportunities available in their community, but they have also been incredibly supportive of the vital work that the LSCP is doing to reduce casualties on London's roads."

Councillor Maureen O'Mara, Greenwich Council's Cabinet Member for Neighbourhood Services, said "The Council's Great Get Togethers are a great opportunity for communities to enjoy a host of summer activities, find out about the wide range of services available in their area and speak with their local councillors about local issues. As well as enjoying these summer events, we also need to remember to be safe on our roads and the Council's work with London Safety Camera Partnership highlights the importance of safety cameras to both children and adults and is an excellent opportunity for residents to learn how to develop safer attitudes on the roads."
