Barry Duckett, who helped organise Saturday’s event, said it had a “really good turnout”.

“People said it was the best festival that they had been to this year,” said the Canada Estate tenants’ and residents’ association chair.

“The free children’s rides were packed all day and all our feedback was positive.

“The working model depicting the new bridge from Rotherhithe to Canary Wharf attracted a lot of attention.”

Mr Duckett thanked Frank Statesboro, the Steve Morrison Band, Robin Bibi, and Bill n Rickey for performing on the day, and the Bermondsey Community Kitchen for feeding the crowd.

He also thanked British Land, Rotherhithe Community Council, Southwark Events, St Olave and Bermondsey United Charities, Rotherhithe Consolidated Charities, North Southwark Environmental Trust, and Keepmoat for their sponsorship of the festival this year.

And he expressed his gratitude for the Mayor of Southwark’s Common Good Trust and everyone who turned up on the day.
