The BRAT street party took place on the gloriously sunny Saturday afternoon of the Bank Holiday weekend. It was fantastic to see the transformation of Plympton Road into a play street, with cars kept at bay and kids’ bikes and scooters taking over the tarmac. Children galore (and their parents) came out to enjoy it and everyone had a good time. A barbecue, an ice-cream van, lots of home-made grub and some kind donations from local businesses kept hunger at bay; while bunting and face-painting made everything and everyone look special. The event was a great success, and paves – pun intended – the way for future happenings.
