The Platinum Jubilee Street Party

Thanks to all the residents who followed the requests to remove parked cars on the day.

Preparations for this event starts weeks ago and finally today, 3. June 2022, we actually set up the street party around the Glasshouse Community Centre.

The road was closed at 12 noon so that the tables could be placed onto the road and prepared for the street party.

When we started the party, families immediately used the tables for our colouring in activity. Kids taking part got stickers and badges.

Chair of the Residents Association, Shamsia Foreman produced delicious cup cakes, which would have stood a definite chance to win the cake baking competition but people were very hungry and the cup cakes got eaten before they could get judged.

In the hall people came to collect food and drink. All families took pictures in front of our Queen Elizabeth tapestry.
