Playing out, street parties and children just running wild – since having children these have been some of my favourite subjects.

My daughter getting to grips with the art of the hulla-hoop while our street was closed off for a party.

Another one of the ancient arts of play being reborn on our reclaimed street.

I love our street so much. Just wish I could do this.

And who could have guessed what would happen when a gang of children got hold of plant-misters?

Even when it rains, a street playing session can be fun.
