Glorious sunshine, glorious bunting
Preparations are well under way for the street party we are organising for the forthcoming Royal Wedding of William and Kate. We had a wonderful turn out on Sunday afternoon for bunting making with people digging out some fabulous fabrics from their attics and all ages were busy cutting out pennants, glueing, and stapling.
At a rough estimate we made 150 metres of the most colourful bunting to decorate our street. We finished off with the last bottle of my elderflower champagne. It seems the whole street will be out looking for elderflowers come June to make their own. It was a great way to get people together and was a great way to kickstart the event as people swapped stories about who lived in the road and what it was like in years gone by. Our next quest is to get together some history. There should be plenty as there are over 80 houses in the road with the earliest dating from 1901.
