THE Vivian Close/Vernon Avenue Street party on Sunday, June 3 was a huge success and rain definitely did not stop play as everyone who said they were going to come made the effort to come and join in the fun.
There is something about partying in the cold and rain (although we had a marquee and a few gazebos to keep us dry) that is decidedly British! Thanks to everyone who came and made the Queen’s Jubilee so special. It was great to share the occasion with so many lovely people and create the memories that our children will always remember.
It made me very proud and thankful to be living in such a great community.
We’ve held on to the flags and the Union Jack hats so that we can cheer on the Olympic torch on 28th June - let’s hope the sun makes an appearance and shines on us all!
