Sharon Holmen-Reddi. Nee Sharon Smith 3rd from the left writes in 2017. "My friends mum, Sylvia used to organise the Children's Day Parade in our local area. Ladbroke Grove / Latimer Road, we all lived in the newly built Lancaster West Estate. That year we were the 'Johnny Walkers', the excitement of taking part was incredible, getting dressed in our top hats, jackets, satin trousers and cardboard boots was such fun. Growing up in Notting Hill, Carnival was just part of life, right through my teenage years to now - although, its not the same anymore, too big and too commercial. I live on the South Coast now and have taken a break from Carnival for the past 5 years or so. I will however, be making a 'come back' this year, as its part of my heritage and miss it dearly."
