From giant board games and farm animals to lots of Christmas fun and even Northern Lights right here in the city, London wonโ€™t disappoint this weekend. Here is our Friday Five: Santa is flying in to Vauxhall City Farm and will welcome little visitors to his cozy grotto.

Is the cow real, or fake?๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿง When we were at Vauxhall City Farm, this cow statue fooled us into thinking it was real! As we approached and the closer we got, we realised how strange it would have been to have a wild cow in the middle of London not in a pen! Nonetheless, we still took a photo with it - so, low and behold, here's us with a cow! ๐Ÿ„

"Today has been so fun, I got to feed the goats and play football, I'm the fastest footballer around"! Children have been the silent victims of COVID 19 with many spending the past 18 months being deprived of social interaction and physical exercise ๐Ÿ‘Ÿ . During October half term we visited Vauxhall City Farm. All the children got to feed and pet the animals (for this young boy the hyper ๐Ÿ was an obvious favourite). ๐Ÿคฉ Join our family of regular givers today and you can give more children the chance to keep making happy memories.๐Ÿ’™ www.solidaritysports.org/memorymakers #Memorymakers #MemoryMakerMonday #keepmoving

Ealing Friday Breezers had another great day out, exploring some of the less well-known sights of London with an expedition to Lambeth. On the way, we had impossibly wonderful blue skies in Kensington Gardens and met the Changing of the Guard on the Mall. Crossing the river via Vauxhall Bridge, we stopped to look at the alpacas (or llamas?) at Vauxhall City Farm , before riding down Black Prince Road to discover the extraordinary building which was once the Royal Doulton Factory, the strange boat sculptures to mark the old White Hart Dock on the Albert Embankment, and the fascinating mosaic projects of Southbank Mosaics CIC , sadly quite hard to look at in the dingy railway arches, but still quite a find, especially the William Blake images. We found other images of local historical characters and events, and passed Damien Hirst's Newport Street Gallery . After all that culture, it was off to the Imperial War Museum cafe, via the Tibetan Peace Garden. Our return ride made a brief detour to admire the statue of Mary Seacole https://www.maryseacoletrust.org.uk/mary-seacole-statue/ in the grounds of St Thomas Hospital, before crossing back over the river at Blackfriars Bridge and taking another detour to see one last Southbank Mosaics project, the Queenhithe Mosaic https://lookup.london/queenhithe-mosaic/ then heading back to Ealing in the late afternoon. Well done to another lovely mix of regular and occasional riders, and one first-timer: Julie, Anne, Diane, Ruth, Lisa, Alicja & Alessandra, with Breeze Champions Pragna & Helen. Check out the website www.letsride.co.uk/groups/west-london-breeze for details of future rides.
