The Roman Road Winter Festival weekend was packed full festive fun. There was Santa’s Grotto, giant bubbles, henna tattooing, face painting, jugglers, magicians, paper chain gangs, Letter to Santa workshop, theatre, plays, bands, buskers, swap shops and our very own Festival Post Office sending festive messages to your nominated pals.
As a not-for-profit media organisation using journalism to strengthen communities, we have not put our digital content behind a paywall or membership scheme as we think the benefits of an independent, local publication should be available to everyone living in our area.
If a fraction of the local 40,000 residents donated two pounds a month to Roman Road LDN it would be enough for our editorial team to serve the area full time and be beholden only to the community. A pound at a time, we believe we can get there.
Support Roman Road LDN from as little as £2 and enjoy the benefits of being a Member.
