Singing happy birthday as Peggy cut the cakeOn Saturday over 750 people turned out to celebrate the 100th birthday of the park with the Friends of Wormholt Park. With decorations and bunting made by children from seven local schools, a range of stalls, food, music, and loads of activities, it was a day for everyone.

At the end of the day everyone joined in singing “Happy Birthday” as Peggy Aslett, a 100-year-old local resident cut the 100th birthday cake. We were also joined by Hammersmith and Fulham Mayor, Frances Stainton, Andy Slaughter MP, Pearly King, Harry Mayhead and Pearly Queen, Doreen Golding.

Another highlight was the history display put together by local historian, Peter Knott, and a group of volunteers, telling the story of the park and local area over the last 100 years.

Thanks to everyone for supporting the raffles and competitions.

There was a wide range of prizes donated by local businesses and the lucky winners included:

  • A Waitrose Italian Hamper worth £40 was won by C. Wren from Oaklands Grove
  • Two BUSH Theatre tickets were won by B. Conduct from Wormholt Road
  • T Wardley won dinner at Queen Adelaide to the value of £50
  • Kat of Oaklands Grove won dinner at Nepalese Tandoori
  • The personally signed book Death or Victory & Norman Walks DVD by Dan Snow was won by Janet O’Malley from Adelaide Grove
  • Melissa from Sedgeford Road won the Janet Adegoke 12 week swimming lessons worth £60
  • Lucky Lucy Cook won annual membership to family history website worth £155
  • The Jellycat cuddly Bunglie Black Kitten toy went to Lorraine from Carteret House, White City Estate
  • Mrs O’Farrel of Orchid Street selected the 1 hour massage worth £65 at The Happiness Centre
  • Charlie of Acton won Brunch at The Hummingbird Café
  • Marie from Holland Park Road won the Happiness Centre Pilates 5 class card – worth £70
  • Mason made the best guess at the number of Jelly Babies in the jar (we don’t have Mason’s number so if you know her please ask her to call Bob on 07932 762448!)
  • and lastly Linda, a Geordie from Creighton Close won the family ticket to see QPR v Newcastle!

The cake baking competition was won by 7-year-old Rana.

The judges of the dog show, Ivan Kushlick and Max Scott, had some hard choices to make with seven entrants. In the end, six year old Yorkshire terrier, DJ, won the most obedient dog in show; nine-month-old Newfoundland, Bertie, won the prize for looking most like his owner, Dave Smith; and three year old British bulldog, Duchess, won best dressed.

Thanks to the QPR in the Community Trust for their hard work across the day running the soccer and archery clinics; to the West London Choir, Kitsch in Sync, Nick and Mike, Susan Black, CSI Steel Band, the Bush Theatre, the Happiness Centre, the Hammersmith Community Gardens Association, Police Cadets, and the Territorial Army for all the activities they ran; and to all the local businesses who supported the event.

Thank you to Winkworths for making the event possible by their sponsorship of the Friends Group.

And finally thanks to all the volunteers who made it all happen.
