My visit to the Lewisham Peoples Day 2015

Every summer the London Borough of Lewisham holds its Lewisham Peoples day.  The festival takes place over at Mountsfield Park and lasts most of the day.

So for Lewisham Peoples day 2015, I wanted to try and blog about the festival, although mainly about the Mental Health and Well-Being angle, which is what I was interested in.

As a member of the Lewisham Mental Health Connection, I spent some time at their stall talking to staff and volunteers.  The weather was lovely, I did not notice any trouble and people were friendly.  It was a great day out, but I coming from a mental health and well-being background, it was not long before I checked out the other stalls at the festival.

To make things fairly easier for people to see what I got up to, feel free to view the video I have made about my visit to the festival, which can be viewed below.

There was lots to do at the peoples day and I could have spent more time there.

Visiting stalls might seem a little boring to some people, so I did have a chance to get involved in activities and I managed to become rather artistic.

Overall I certainly enjoyed Lewisham Peoples day 2015 and cannot wait for next year.
