Date set for 2016 Street Party

There were a total of 28 responses to the recent questionnaire asking residents if they’d like a street party again this year and if so, when to hold it. A resounding 100% of the respondents said “YES” to a street party.

Views on the best date weren’t quite as unanimous, with 19 votes for July, 16 for August, 4 for September and 3 for June. When asked about dates to avoid, 1 respondant said they couldn’t make July 2nd, 4 couldn’t make July 9th, 6 couldn’t make the 16th, 4 the 23rd, 3 the 30th, 6 couldn’t do August 6th, 3 couldn’t do the 13th, 3 the 20th and 7 the 27th.

A few of us got together on Monday (18th April) to go through the responses and try to find the best (or least worst) date for the event. From the responses it was clear that the 2nd of July was the least worst date, but some felt it was too early in the summer. However, after much discussion, it was agreed this is the fairest date to choose and appears to be the only date most people can make the event.

It was agreed that this year’s event will be Saturday July 2nd 2pm – late.

More details will be provided in the newsletter being dropped through letterboxes this week.

The next planning meeting & get together is on Bank Holiday Monday 2nd May at 6pm at the Coppermill (hopefully outside, weather permitting). Come along if you can.

Remember, Bob’s Birthday Party will be held on Saturday June 4th from 2pm – 4pm. All Elmfield residents are invited.
