Bellevue Fair 2013 a roaring success

Bellevue Fair is a local fixture in Wandsworth Common and is loved by local residents and visitors alike. The fair perfectly encapsulates the vibrancy and community spirit of this rather unique part of London.  Sandwiched between Tooting and Clapham Junction, both popular neighbourhoods in their own right, what’s surprising about the area surrounding James Pendleton Estate Agents’ Wandsworth Common office on Bellevue Road is its leafy tranquillity in such close proximity to the metropolis.

With wares ranging from food samples to books and crafts, the independent retailers along Bellevue Road created a one day market offering up the unique flavours of the neighbourhood.  Other local businesses such as James Pendleton, an award winning estate agents in Wandsworth, decided to provide the visiting public with a fun challenge ideal for a weekend family stroll.

The company, which markets properties for sale and properties to rent in Wandsworth and beyond, had great success in 2012 with a fast paced ‘Cash Cube’ challenge, and this year gave giant gaming a family twist with a scaled up version of board game favourite ‘Operation’.  Participants competed for cash prizes by removing ‘body parts’ including the infamous funny bone in the quickest time.  With a fun atmosphere (created by the James Pendleton team’s ‘surgical’ attire) and prizes awarded to children and adults alike, plenty of passers-by left the office smiling.

Bellevue Road is lined on one side with boutique style shops and pubs as well as Michelin starred restaurant Chez Bruce, while on the other side the Common stretches northwards.  For the 2013 Bellevue Fair the park played host to the Mayhew Animal Centre’s dog show, an ever popular attraction thanks to Wandsworth Common’s enormous popularity with dog owners.

The event, which ran from 10am to 6pm, culminated in a raffle drawn by popular TV property personality Phil Spencer.  The raffle prizes were contributed by businesses along Bellevue Road and formed an absolutely fantastic prize list including an unusual offer from James Pendleton Estate Agents’ Angel department.  One lucky winner will benefit from the department’s free and secure concierge service plus £250 towards home maintenance works.
