We had a fantastic day down on the Strawberry Vale Estate (East Finchley) celebrating the Royal Wedding of William and Kate.
The Green Man Management Group and a team of volunteers helped organise the day, which started early in the morning with the catering team arriving at the Green Man to prepare the food in the main hall whilst watching the wedding take place. Another team of people headed out onto the estate to put up bunting and balloons, and help set up the tables and seating areas.
A long row of tables was run down Brook Walk, catering for up to 250 children whilst the adults had a separate area for their food. Residents were invited to bring a dish to share and share they did as the food tables were over-flowing with a mix of dishes ranging from cucumber sandwiches to spicy indian curries.
It really was a great day as most of the 800 residents who live on the estate came out to join in the fun, which included a tombolo Stall, Sumo Wrestling, a Bouncy Castle and the Regenerate Bus. Nice thing was that the sun was out, people enjoyed themselves and there was no trouble at all.
The Green Man Management Group would like to thank everyone who came along, especially those who volunteered to help out and made it such a lovely day. Don’t forget to check out our Facebook page, and tag yourselves in our Royal Wedding Facebook photo album.
