Our first event was a street party, held on Monday 4th June 2012 to celebrate the Queen’s 60th Jubilee.
A merry band of local residents successfully closed the street, set up trestle tables and invited the community to share in the party. It was a magnificent success – helped by the best day of weather of the whole Bank Holiday weekend.
The tombola prizes ran out within two hours! Victoria sponge cakes were baked and judged, as were the fancy dressers. Eggs and spoons were run up and down the street by all ages. A hundred balloons were blown up and released into the skies, many of which were tracked in a straight line from Leamington to Hastings down on the south coast. Amazingly, later in the summer one was even found in Italy!
Over £400 was raised for Myton Hopsice, and a fabulous time was had by all.
