Queen's Platinum Jubilee

Queen's Platinum Jubilee

Hand's up!  Who can remember the Queens Silver Jubilee?  

I can, just about...... it was 1977, I was at primary school and I recall the school organising a huge outdoor fete.  The weather was glorious.  We'd made 'Jubilee Hats' to be judged in a competition.  There were donkey rides, mini assault courses, competitions, tombolas, cake stalls......you name it.  

It was a great day, full of excitement for us as kids. My everlasting memory though is the absolute sea of red, white and blue that fluttered from every fence post, lamp post and window.  People wore it and even the cakes were decorated with Union Jacks.  

It was my first experience of feeling part of a community and sensing the strength of our country's national pride and it was fabulous! 

To think she will now be celebrating 70 years is incredible. Whether you're a fan of the Royal family or not, one cannot deny her dedication and hard work and she deserves the biggest party to celebrate with the most attendees ever!

So what will you be doing on Jubilee weekend?

I'm lucky to live in a great little street that gets together most years for a street party so we're well organised with a format that works for us.  We just need to add some bunting.

If you fancy organising a street party where you live here's our top tips!

1. Plan early and share jobs between willing residents
2. If you need a temporary road closure you need to contact your local council.
3. Ask everyone to bring a dish to share.  Designate whether this should be sweet or savoury so you get a good mix.
4. Let people bring their own drinks. 
5. Sort out some fun activities for the kids, face painting etc.  Happy kids, happy parents:)
6. Order one of our Street Party Kits with all of the essentials included.
