The Summer Picnic Fun Day, opened by journalist and former MP Martin Bell, 75, took place at Central Square, beside St Jude-on-the-Hill and Hampstead Garden Suburb Free Church.

Attractions included face painting, a Punch and Judy performance, and light entertainment courtesy of the Sam Braysher Jazz Quartet.

David Littaur, chairman of the events committee and the Hampstead Garden Suburb Residents Association, said: “It went marvellously, because it wasn’t a very warm day. There were a lot of people, and a wonderful lot of children.

“Latecomers had some drinks when they arrived, some Pimms, or whatever they wanted, and some people had picnic tables. I think everybody thoroughly enjoyed themselves.”
