The Olympic Torch relay went by our little street on Monday. As such, people turned out in droves to catch a glimpse of it going by.
The long, hot, wait...
Maya and friends, Issy and Charlie, take the opportunity to raise some money selling drinks, cupcakes, and brownies.
Finally, the sponsors come by. Coke was giving out bottles of Coke, and Samsung did as much as they could atop the bus to get everyone into party mode.
The Olympic Torch bearer for our leg of the relay was Jennifer Deeney, a Merton local with an inspirational life story, and an impressive portfolio of volunteer work.
The mood was so celebratory, the police motorcade was high-five-ing everyone along the street.
Then it was off to the grounds of Ricards Lodge School nearby for dose of community spirit and an afternoon of family fun.
The steel drum band belts out a rousing rendition of "Tequila"...
...while Maya, Issy and Charlie quickly set up shop.
And they're good to go! Here are their first customers - hungry little boys! :)
