|I heart Balham!|
I have lived in Balham for 14 years. Now, I know that you're probably thinking that I don't look old enough, but, sadly I am! I moved to The Gateway of The South when I was just 18 and it has become my home from home. I've lived on Terrapin Road, Ouseley Road, Oakmead road (where I believe that Julie Walters also once lived too) and I spent a short time on Hydethorpe Road, in between houses on a friends settee - ahh, we've all been there..... So, I think that it's only fair to say that I really do mean what my bag says! It really does hold a special place in my heart.

|The Deputy Mayor of Wandsworth|
At the top end of Hildreth street was the stage and a whole host of musicians and performers, oh and of course, me! The Deputy Mayor officially opened the festival and even the sun put his hat on for us! The South London choir kicked off the day and got the crowd dancing to The Black Eyed Peas - "I gotta a feeling" which has inspired me, for one, to join the choir!
|The Balham Uka Lo Lo Society!|
|The Olympic Microphone|
It really was a great day to be a part of and to really be reminded of just how lucky we are to be a part of a London community, with such good restaurants and talent on our doorstep. The Balham food festival will be going on until the 29th July, my birthday, and so I expect to see many faces out and about in Balham taking full advantage of the fantastic offers and making the most of that Balham Fizz!
