Jubilee Street Party

Funded by a grant of £100 from NCC and a very generous gift of £150 from Adrian Flux, East Winch Parochial Church Council and helpers organised a two-part celebration: a street party and an exhibition of memorabilia.


Jubilee Street Party - 2012

The day was so windy that the Union Jack table coverings were ripped off by the wind and had to be kept in place by yards and yards of Sellotape, while the Pringles weren't safe on a plate - the wind scattered them everywhere. In spite of these drawbacks, people drifted up and chatted, bringing scrumptious food. The strawberries, paid for by the Wilson family, were delicious, as was Paula's red, white and blue cake! The Bouncy Castle was used throughout the day, especially by a group of boys who never got tired The youngest of them memorably lost a milk tooth while bouncing, and had to take time off to carry it home. The fancy dress competition was won jointly by the only two contestants, Lauren and  Kasey Grimes,  dressed identically!


Jubilee Street Part - 2012

Meanwhile, the Village Hall was resplendent in patriotic colours with books, photos and memorabilia, some going back to Queen Victoria's jubilee. Here it was calmer, and there was lots to look at over cups of tea.


Many thanks to those who set up and dismantled the exhibition, who shifted tables for the street party, who donated food and money and miles of bunting, who planned, and who helped out generally. We are proud to have marked this special day at East Winch.
