Trades_Parade_DSC_0069_750The Friends of Windmill Gardens, with Lambeth council and its contractor Veolia, organised its annual “trades parade” today (26 June). It went from Windrush Square to the Windmill, where a festival is under way until 5pm.

People wearing the attire of their trade were joined by samba and capoeira performers.
