Right royal red white and blue plan for Freshbrook centre
The royal wedding on 29 April will be celebrated with a traditional family street party at Freshbrook Community Centre – and all local people are invited to take part.
Centre chair Steph Bird said, “we’ll have a big screen so everyone can enjoy the live broadcast of Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding and there will be a kings and queens fancy dress, with family fun and games including a bouncy castle.”
During the special day families can just turn up, bringing a plate of food to share at lunch. In the evening there is a ticketed family event, with hog roast and disco, as well as entertainment from some of the groups that meet at the centre.
Neal Aplin, a committee member who is organising the event, wants everyone to join in. “Why waste an extra bank holiday - let’s get the community together and celebrate a national event?”
Details of the day will be confirmed after wedding timings are announced.
