Newsletter May 22 2015.

[Online version of newsletter being delivered this weekend:-]

A few weeks ago a questionnaire was posted to every house and flat on the street asking if people would like another street party this year.  We’ve now collated the responses and all say YES to another party this year.

We also asked people to tell us their preferred date or dates for the event, and which dates they couldn’t make it. Based on the responses, it looks like the best date for the event is (drumroll) …

SATURDAY 11TH JULY

3PM – 11PM.

This doesn’t leave us much time to organise the event, so any help you can offer will be much appreciated!

 Clifford has already submitted the road closure and insurance application and put in a bid for a small amount of funding to help cover the cost of materials.

 There were a number of suggestions for events and activities provided in the questionnaire responses.

Events from last year that were suggested as good ideas again for this year included the space hopper race, Bake Off, Best Front Garden, face painting (update – and tug-of-war).

Suggestions for new events included Slowest cycle race, walking with several glasses of water (how much water left in glasses), grand finale disco (various music), sumo racing, entertainment under the shelter if needed due to weather, bouncy castle, salsa music, barn dance (with caller), gardening the verge, hula hooping, puppet show, art installation created during the day, ceildh/some other kind of dance, activities based at The Mill.

We might not have much time to organise all of these! If anyone can help please come along to the first proper planning meeting, to be held

 THURSDAY 28 MAY 8PM COPPERMILL PUB.

AS WITH ALL PREVIOUS EVENTS, ALL NEIGHBOURS AND THEIR FRIENDS ARE INVITED AND THERE IS NO ENTRANCE FEE. ALL WE ASK IS THAT YOU BRING ALONG SOME FOOD AND/OR DRINK TO SHARE ON THE DAY AND HELP WITH TIDYING UP PLATES, CANS ETC AS THE DAY GOES ON (TO AVOID A MASSIVE CLEAR UP AT THE END OF THE NIGHT).
