The shops and businesses of Devonshire Road are celebrating the success of their street party last Saturday (13th September).

The idea behind the event was to raise awareness and promote the Road and its predominately owner run independent businesses. They also wanted to say 'thank you' to the local community for supporting them throughout the year. The following selection of photographs by Ian Wylie captures the atmosphere of the day.

The day featured live bands, races, give aways, a hog roast, street theatre, close up magic, Dog Agility, a Special surprise from Top Hat Cleaners, face painting and many more events.

Mike Moran said "The Charity we are supporting and that will benefit from all the donations taken on the day is Cedars, a local Youth Charity based on Sutton Court Road. Cedars recognises the needs of children and young people to have a safe space, away from home and school pressures where they can relax, be safe and feel safe. We also seek to address further needs, such as difficult home conditions and problems in school."
