Notthing Hill Carnival is an annual event that has taken place since 1966 on the streets of Notting Hill each August over two days (the August bank holiday Monday and the preceding Sunday). It is led by members of the British West Indian community, and attracts around one million people annually. And Hasi, her hubby, their friends and I were among those million people dancing and celebrating. I learnt how to twerk. Not a skill I will need anytime soon.
Big thank you to all the police officers, ambulance people, volunteers and helping souls for taking so good care of us. You did an amazing job.
Most of the neighbours contributed by selling food, giving sweets and drinks to the caring souls to ensure they didn’t suffer too much while watching out for us. Amzing. Thank you.
