The Barking Riverside London team were delighted to welcome over 1200 local residents to the second annual Barking Riverside and Thames View Community Fireworks Display on Tuesday 6th November.
Sponsored by The Careys Foundation and L&Q, the event took place at the Barking Riverside Project Office, where several local suppliers were selling burgers, chips and hot tea and coffee, and a DJ entertained the crowds before the display.
A group of Pupil Ambassadors from Riverside Primary School led the countdown for the spectacular display, which lasted for 13 minutes and was completely free for local residents.
Varsha Patel, PR, Marketing and Events Manager at Barking Riverside, comments: “We are delighted to have partnered with the Careys Foundation and L&Q to deliver our second community fireworks display and were thrilled that to have more than double the number of attendees than at our inaugural display in 2017. Community events such as Fireworks provide a brilliant opportunity for the community to get together and enjoy a fabulous evening with family and friends – and we will be hosting a programme of events for local people here on site in 2019 and beyond!”
