Albion Street Mid Summer market a great success – Simon Hughes

After visiting on Saturday Simon Hughes, the local MP, said that the Albion Street Mid Summer market this year was a great success.

Simon Hughes added: “Everybody involved with the first Mid Summer market for many years in Albion Street, deserves congratulation. Young and older businesses had stalls along the road, selling food drink and many other things from home and abroad – including Finland, linked to the Finnish church in the street. Maypole dancing lessons were an additional excitement for children.

“It is really good that so many people are committed to bringing back life and commercial activity to Albion Street, Rotherhithe is on the way up and everybody will benefit if Albion Street really takes off as a successful local shopping centre in SE16.”
