The Limehouse community packed out Ropemakers Fields as residents celebrated the 30th anniversary of LIMEfest .

The Canary Woof dog show, the Carrot Cars Tug O’ War and the Almost 5k Fun Run were just some of the popular attractions at the event on Sunday, July 3, organised by the Limehouse Community Forum.

Forum vice-chairman Lesley Balding said the turnout and the reaction by residents made the festival’s 30th birthday extra special.

“The weekend was amazing, it was really fantastic,” said Lesley. “We had some great coverage in the media and social media went bonkers. It was huge.

Canary Woof had one of its most popular years

“I would say the turnout was about 30% greater than previous years overall. The park was absolutely packed and I probably saw twice as many dogs at Canary Woof than I did last year.

“I didn’t get around to seeing everything as I was so busy at the dog show, but the feedback I was getting was incredible.”

As well as the mainstay events like the dog show, there was live music, a kids zone and a selection of market stalls put on by local businesses.

The Tug O’ War, sponsored by cab company Carrot Cars , was won by the players of Millwall Rugby Club for the third year in a row.

The inaugural Limehouse Almost 5k Fun Run saw 90 people take part.

Lesley said: “It really did make the 30th anniversary special. Limehouse was out in full force and the sun was shining. It could not have been any better.”
