Street party success

Last week, Barnet residents celebrated the Royal Wedding by throwing more than 50 street parties. Party organisers registered their events through the Barnet Pledgebank website, meaning their public liability insurance costs were covered by the council.

The large number of street parties that took place indicates both how popular the Royal Wedding was with Barnet residents, and how successful the Royal Wedding street party pledge has been. I think it’s wonderful that so many local people got involved.

If you didn’t hold a street party last Friday, there’s another chance next month. The Big Lunch, a one day get-together for neighbours, takes place on Sunday 5 June. Email for an organiser’s information pack or call the council on 020 8359 7293.
