It was a day of sunshine, laughs and celebrations, all accompanied by cake and Pimms to truly make it a Very British Sunday.

Over 3,000 people arrived in East Village for the much anticipated followup to last year's E20 Fair, and it didn't disappoint. Coinciding with the weekly East Village Market, which takes place next to Victory Park every Sunday, there was a giant screen put up in the park, quickly becoming known as 'Murray's Mat' with thousands finding a spot in the sunshine - and if they were lucky on a giant beanbag - to cheer on Andy Murray in the Wimbledon Men's Tennis Final. 

The day turned out beautifully with glorious sunshine illuminating the gathering crowds, who were situated right next to an lovely variety of food and drink stalls, including a marquee offering the Vintage Tea Rooms proving a huge success.

In addition, the Children's fun zone along West Park Walk was home to theme park rides, an inflatable slide, artistic quality balloon animals and very artistic face painting. It all made for a great day that all the family was able enjoy and find relaxation in.

The Very British Sunday event was all rounded off particularly nicely by a very British winner, with huge cheers erupting as he rallied his way to a three set victory.
