It was organised by Cllr Brian Eagling and Nick Joseph, the head of the charity and also a medal bearer from the 1977 film Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.
The image above is taken from page 6 of this week's Romford Recorder where you can read the full story. I'm pictured with Cllr Eagling, Darren Wise, Chewbacca, Princess Leia, Boba Fett, and some Storm Troopers.
Check out this video of the event put together by the fan group Retro Star Wars:
And here are some snaps I took from the day. Enjoy!
