5th Annual Summer Street Party 2012 Final Newsletter

Elmfield Road Street Party July 21st 2012 1pm to 11pm

July 12th: The final newsletter.

MARQUEE/SHELTER: This weekend (14th-15th) Cliff Is going to be out on the green from mid-day Saturday or Sunday (depending on the weather) working on strengthening the marquee covers. Please come out and help if you’re around. He’ll start building the frame for the Marquee from Thursday 19th onwards and could probably do with some help then as well.


ROAD CLOSURE: Don’t forget the road will be closed to through traffic on Saturday 21st from midday to 11pm. Also, if you can move your cars away from the central part of the street by midday on the 21st it will help keep the road clear and safe for everyone,


TABLES & CHAIRS: So far we’ve worked out we’ll be using the funding (see previous newsletter) to help cover the cost of the marquee materials, lighting, gazebos for extra shelter, plastic tables (to set out the cake competition and raffle prizes), marquee decorations and payments for the bands. There’s not enough to hire tables and chairs so please bring out any spare garden/camping tables and chairs on the day so people can sit and enjoy the event.  We’ll provide labels to help make sure you are reunited with your furniture afterwards.


FOOD & DRINK: As usual, there will be long tables in the marquee for people to use to share food and drink. Bring out whatever you can share.


RAFFLE: Charmaine, Cliff and David will begin calling door-to-door for any raffle prize donations you might have from Sunday evening onwards (please don’t worry if you can’t donate). We’ll be selling raffle tickets on the day at 50p per ticket or £2.00 per strip of 5. Even with the extra funding this year we’ll heavily rely on money raised in the raffle to cover costs.


CAKE COMPETITION: Please bring out your entries for the Bake Off by 3pm. It’s free to enter, it’s nothing too serious and you could win a fantastic trophy. Cakes will be judged anonymously and the winner announced at around 8pm.


FANCY DRESS: The fancy dress theme is Walthamstow / East London with judging at around 6pm for kids and around 8pm for adults. Winners receive £20.00 Love To Shop vouchers.


LIVE MUSIC:Bands should be playing at 3pm, 5pm and 7pm (depending on weather).


The FINAL planning meeting will be held on Tuesday 17th July at 7.30pm in the Coppermill.

Let’s all have a fantastic party
