If you go to Roe Green on Saturday, you are in for a big surprise

If you have never been to Roe Green Village in Kingsbury you are in for a big surprise if you pop into the Centenary Village Day on Saturday - there really couldn't be a bigger contrast to the blocks of Wembley Park even if the two places were hundreds of miles apart. In fact Roe Green is about three miles from the Stadium.

 Get there at 12 noon to support the youngster of the Brent Concert Band and either take a picnic or choose from  Caribbean, Indian vegetarian or Greek food while you enjoy the performance.

There will be plenty for children to enjoy including Punch and Judy and children's games and there will be a fly past by a De Havilland Tiger Moth biplane at about 3pm.

Visitors from other parts of Brent will be very welcome, but please travel by public transport (302 bus to the Grove Park stop is the nearest, or Jubilee Line to Kingsbury Station or 183 / 204 bus to the Valley Drive stop, then 10 minute walk across Roe Green Park).
