Street Party 2012 Questionnaire Results.

The Street Party Questionnaire Results Are In.

45 questionnaires were distributed on 1st March, one to every home on the street. 21 were returned by the end of March. Here are the results:-

“Should there be a summer street party this year?” 20 answered YES, no-one answered NO and 1 answered NO STRONG OPINION.

“What date would you prefer?” 7 had no preference. There were 5 votes for July 7th, 5 for July 14th, 8 for July 21st and 4 for July 28th (some chose more than one date).

“Any suggestions on how the street party could be improved this year.”
• Nudist bathing and a fun adult strip in the night time – weather permitting [Please don’t worry – we’re pretty sure this was not a serious suggestion. It won’t happen, this is a family show!]
• No wind or rain
• Sunny weather please
• Ceilidh
• More chairs available in tented and grassed area – ask folk to lend and mark their chairs
• Tombola and similar
• Lucky dips have always been a hit with kids
• How about an Elmfield Road Cake Competition – a bit W.I. but with a twist
• Fruit punch non/alcoholic
• ‘Sports day’ theme – Olympics theme? Simple races like 3 legged race, egg and spoon race
• More decorations – get kids involved in making bunting/signs to put up on fence
• Invite people from “The Mill” to strengthen community contacts.

“Are you (or do you know) a performer / band who might be willing to play at the party?” 4 responses

“Can you spare some time to help organise the party? 8 positive responses.

Thanks for responding to the questionnaire. It would appear that Elmfield Road does want to hold a summer street party and the preferred date is Saturday July 21st. We now need to sort out a date and venue for the first planning meeting – watch out for posters on the street with the details.

Jubilee Street Party.

The questionnaire also asked “Are you interested in holding a Jubilee Street Party … on Sunday 3rd June to coincide with the national ‘Jubilee Big Lunch’ (see” 11 answered YES, 4 answered NO and 6 answered NO OPINION.

In response to the question “If you’d like to get involved in organising a Jubilee ‘Big Lunch’ Party, leave your name, address and contact details…” there were 4 responses. We’ll put those who responded about the Jubilee Party in touch with each other.
