ORGANISERS who arranged the first North Parade street party saw their hard work pay off as the sun came out and the crowds followed.

Saturday's event was arranged to showcase diverse businesses which occupy the city centre street and traders praised Bradford Council's approach in supporting the event.

It was organised by Nigel Booth, a businessman with a maintenance contract on the street, supported by bars and other traders.

He said: "I thought we should do something to promote the street and mentioned it to the city centre manager. The council were amazing and encouraged us to go ahead with it."

The event is now likely to become an annual fixture, with ideas already in place for a similar Christmas themed event at the end of the year.

It was an opportunity for Forks, the new community enterprise cafe, lounge and bakery to give the public a preview of what to expect when it opens up in the autumn.

The business has come about through the Bridge Project and has been supported by Government cash and money from Bradford Council's growth zone fund to renovate the building.

Tracey Hogan, director of operations at the Bridge Project said: "It will be run by professional catering staff, a bit like Jamie Oliver's 15."
