Once Stepney was a community. Then the war came and knocked most of it down. As concrete blocks spring up where the door-step families used to be, the sense of community seems to have vanished. So the people of Stepney decided to do something about it. They staged their own festival. Result: a huge success for thousands of people. Rose, born in Stepney 40 years ago, commented, ' What was lost is back again, but it's took a long while.'
