Hundreds of residents flocked to a street party to celebrate their community.

Simon Wasser, who co-organised the Sustrans event, said Friday’s party in Marks Gate was a “good opportunity” to do something positive after Ricky Hayden was killed outside his home in Chadwell Heath earlier this month.

Residents young and old took part in bike workshops, apple-coring and jewellery-making along Rose Lane and Tantony Green to mark the culmination of the charity’s 18-month project to promote bike and road safety.

Rev Tim Brampton from St Mark’s Church also thanked Eastbury Concert Band for their touching rendition of Abide with Me, which was performed in memory of Ricky.
