The UK's best street food trucks will be offering food in the heart of Hackbridge every week.

Residents of New Mill Quarter and beyond, can expect to taste a variety of flavours as part of a new food vendor scheme.

The programme, which is currently on a one-month trial, will include pizza, Indian, Caribbean, Thai and much more.

Chair of New Mill Quarter Sheldon Vestey organised the scheme to lift spirits in the community.

Together he worked with management company RMG and intermediary G-Events to launch the programme which offers a new vendor each week.

Speaking to Sutton Guardian, Mr Vestey said: "Community events are at the heart of any great area.

"I'm keen to see Hackbridge be the best it can be and for people to be able to enjoy themselves as we start to emerge from the pandemic."

He added: "There was meant to be a dedicated space for this sort of stuff locally but unfortunately our local councillors allowed it to be removed.

"A lot of residents locally were promised this stuff for the hardship of the years of building works, this was the least I could do to give back to the community."

G Events, who are running the food truck programme in Hackbridge, said: "G Events are thrilled to have the opportunity to bring the UK's best street food trucks to New Mill Quarter in Hackbridge on a regular basis.

"We believe that this will be a great way to bring the community together over some delicious food, and give everyone a chance to taste different cuisines right on their doorstep, from some of the most well-known food trucks."

Sudhir Sethi, Co-founder of Gully, who served Indian Street Food last week, said: "It was fantastic to see the local community out in the sun and enjoying our Indian Street Food at Gully.

"Street food for us is about bringing people together and putting smiles on our customers faces, we cannot wait to be back at New Mill Quarter in the coming weeks and months."

The programme may continue after one month depending on consultation from residents.
