A new event designed to bring out people’s community spirit this summer has been announced by Haringey Council.

The People’s Day, billed as a celebration of the borough’s rich diversity, talent and community spirit, will take place at Tottenham Town Hall on Saturday, June 7.

It will offer a chance for residents to find out more about community and voluntary organisations in the borough, while enjoying a range of talks, performances and activities.

For community and voluntary groups, the day will be an opportunity to showcase services and to network with other organisations.

Cllr Sheila Peacock, Mayor of Haringey, said: “I’m really looking forward to hosting the borough’s first ever People’s Day. It will be a wonderful opportunity for Haringey’s community groups, voluntary organisations and local residents to come together, learn more about each other and have a lot of fun in the process.

“If you’re involved with a local organisation that would like to take part in People’s Day, we want to hear from you.”

Stalls will be free to stage, and applications are open now.

Information stalls will be grouped into zones covering: Money, skills and employment; health and wellbeing; culture; green; children and families; and young people.

The council is also on the hunt for people who may be willing to share practical advice and information through a talk or workshop, and from people who are keen to showcase their talent through performance or sports activities.

+ More information is available at where anyone interested in taking part can also download an application form. Applications should be submitted by Friday, February 28.
