The start of the summer saw BRL host the very first Big Barking Riverside Picnic. The event was held along the river Thames and offered residents free picnic hampers (courtesy of Pinnacle Places), live music and fun activities for all the family – including our very own pop-up beach, which was a big hit with the children!
The borough’s very first Cycling Time Trial took place on the same day and was a great success, with both adults and children taking part to complete the circuit in the fastest time. Eight lucky winners received a bike, courtesy of Barking Riverside Limited.
BRL is committed to developing a programme of events for the community each year but are this year keen to work with residents to help deliver events with the community. If you wish to be involved or want to find out more, please contact us.
