Notes from the Street Party Meeting June 6th 2010.

There was a good turnout for the first street party meeting to be held on the grass verge on the street. Nadine took very detailed minutes which are available from David, Nadine or Ian. Here’s a summary of what was discussed:-

The marquee will be 45-feet in length. It will require volunteers on Thursday night to help construct the frame, and on the day to help finish off covering the frame. A stage will be constructed inside the Marquee.

People could bring out any spare tables (for food and raffle prizes) and garden chairs on the day. You might want to put your door number on a sticker on any furniture you bring out, just to make sure it all gets back to its rightful owners.

Please invite friends and relatives. There will be no charge for anyone to attend the party, just ask people to bring some food or drink along and/or to buy some raffle tickets.

The next planning meeting will be on the grass verge again, on Sunday June 20th at 3pm.

The party will start at 1pm on Saturday July 10th.

The Karaoke will be extended to 2 hours and it is possible we might have some live music on the day (watch this space, I guess).

Other events on the day include face painting, world-cup themed games, a Wii tournament, Coconut Shy, races, bingo … come to the next meeting to find out more.

Don’t forget the road will be closed to traffic all day from 12 noon and it’ll work best if people move their cars to either end of the street.

If people can bring out their recycle boxes to be used on the day that would be great, but remember to put your door number on the box so it can be returned to the right house.
