We’re having a party. Not just any party. A Street Party.
We’ll be raising money for the Charlie Cookson Foundation and celebrating the Queen’s 90th Birthday. It’s free to attend and everyone is welcome.
There’ll be food and drink, games and competitions and plenty to keep the whole family entertained.
What better way to spend a Sunday afternoon than having fun and enjoying games with your friends and family.
Come along and join us for what promises to be a great day.
You can find out more or let me know you’ll be coming here
If you can’t come to the party but want to help you can donate at www.justgiving.com/5iftyby5ifty
It’s Party Time
As you probably know the Queen is 90 this year. Although her actual birthday was on 21 April the country will continue to celebrate in style until her Official Birthday in June. We’ve already seen beacons lit across the country, new stamps release and a televised pageant from the grounds of Windsor Castle.
And there’s still more to come with a service of thanksgiving on 10 June, Trooping of the Colour (Birthday Parade) on 11 June and the Patrons Lunch and Street Party in the Mall on 12 June. Oh and I nearly forgot to mention, that in true British style, there’ll also be extended pub opening hours on Friday 10 June.
As there’s to be a whole weekend of celebrations in London I thought it would be nice to find a way to join in. So after much thought (well about 10 minutes anyway) I’ve decided I’m going to have a………………………
on Sunday 12 June
And it’s not just to celebrate the Queen’s Birthday. It’s to raise funds for the Charlie Cookson Foundation as well
I’m still finalising the arrangements but I promise it will be a great day for all the family. More information will follow in the next couple of days but if you live in or around South Shields why not put the date in your diary now.
