Bermondsey cheer

Christmas came early to the Blue this afternoon with a rodeo reindeer, a Christmas market, an escapologist, an artificial ice rink (left), Irish dancers, Santa's Grotto, Face-painting, carol singing and live music all adding to the festive fun. A great community event. Thank you to all the organisers.

Meanwhile, at the Salmon Youth Centre, it was the annual Old People's Christmas Party.

This year's entertainment included some old Cockney favourites like 'Maybe its because I'm a
Londoner' and 'Any old Iron', a bit of Cliff Richard and Bing, carols (of course), some very talented musicians, a Christmas talk by Jos, the 'resis' singing the Bermondsey Waiters Song (Oh we are Bermondsey Waiters we are, We want to serve you like you was a star, Mince pies and rosie and plenty of cheer, Just because it is Christmas at this time of year), some brilliant salsa dancing by some very  energetic youngsters (above), .....and Johnny's jokes, straight out of the Christmas cracker.

Oh, yes, and don't forget Father Christmas, presents for everyone, all that food, and a lift home for everyone afterwards. Superb. Thank you Salmon.
