It has been a fantastic long weekend for most people on the Strawberry Vale estate as neighbours came together to enjoy the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations with a massive party held at the Green Man Community Centre.
The Green Man Management Group (GMMG) and an army of volunteers have been extremely busy preparing for the big day, ordering decorations, cooking food, planning tables and activities.
Thanks to Gary, Chris, David and Tom who got to work putting up the street bunting. Meanwhile the rest of the team of volunteers were helping to set things up in the main hall.
Thanks to Peabody for providing £500 towards the costs of the party, along with the 150 year printed plates, knapkins and table covers.
Everyone got a warm welcome and a chance to have their photo taken with Paddington the Bear as they arrived. There was a magician doing card tricks and the local cadets lent a hand.
Upstairs in the GMMG meeting room tables were set up for face painting and nail bars.
And across the hall way Rachel, Sandra and other volunteers were organising arts and crafts tables.
And outside in the back garden we set up more tables and a Bouncy Castle.
So open the doors and let’s get the party started…
Thanks to everyone who came along and made the event such a success.
