150 years of Ally Pally

On 21 July 2013 we were part of the celebrations for the 150 years of Ally Pally. The park was turned into a community festival and featured all sorts of amazing things from local rugby and cricket, bands, a community and food market to balloon rides!

We were asked by the organisers to create a fantastic cake which would form the centrepiece of one of the day’s focal points. Not only that but it was to be cut by the Mayor of Haringey on a bandstand in front of lots of the visitors to the park! This was obviously not a task for the faint hearted but I am sure you will agree that we did the WI proud – why not have a look at our album of pictures?

As well as the cake, we also hosted a stall which gave us the opporunity to spread the word about our WI and make some fantastic contacts with other community groups. All in all it was a wonderful day and it was great to be part of the celebrations for this fascinating building on our doorstep!
