Residents gathered in a community space by the canalside in Jericho to enjoy a 'lazy' Sunday.

The late summer sun was shining bright yesterday on stalls selling plants, art and books galore and G&D ice creams were on sale in the new public space - Mount Place.

The area has been brought alive by local community effort.

More than 150 people came to enjoy it from Jericho and and further afield.

Thanks to the enterprising Stuart Miller, of Oxford’s newest floating venue Towpath Productions, the entertainment went on all afternoon.

Musical acts including The Scott Gordon Band, Billy Watman, the Mother Folkers and the Jolly Grogsters  kept the fun going from midday until close to 6pm.

It attracted spectators across the canal and on the bridge.

There was a poetic interlude too provided by Creative Connections organised by Kate Oldfield.

Fifteen poets read their works of varying lengths from four lines to plenty more.

John Mair, the organiser of Lazy Sunday said: "It is hard to think of a more idyllic setting, better late summer weather and more cracking entertainment!

"What a way to say adieu to a horrible 18 months of confinement to our homes."

Lazy Sunday follows successful book and art fairs in Mount Place Jericho earlier this summer.

There will be an Octoberfest there on Sunday October 17 with German sausages and much more plus a Christmas Market on December 5.
