Community Street Party!!!
September 28 @ 12:30 pm - 3:00 pm
The residents group is organising a ‘big lunch’ style community street party event. Come along to get to know your neighbours!
Hackney are giving us the £500 ‘big lunch’ fund and we have some other community money to spend on this.
So far the plan is:
- Hackney Play Bus will be attending which has lots of play equipment and fun for kids.
- The party will be based on the Play Street and in Unit C (vacant unit near Sainsbury’s)
- Please bring a dish to share in a community lunch
- We will have an area for a bring/take exchange so bring any clothes, toys, household items that you don’t want anymore and take anything that you want (all free)
We would like live music if anyone knows any bands that might want to play? (Funding available to pay them)
If you have any other ideas for activities etc please let us know as soon as possible!!
We will need volunteers to help set up & clear away, keep an eye on food table, bring/take table, marshal street safety etc
We would like to close the section of road that cuts across the play street (Casbeard St) and down between the hoarded areas towards Datchworth Court (this will not affect any parking spaces). Unfortunately we are too late to apply to do this officially so we will just be putting up bunting and politely asking people not to drive through from about 11am-4pm for the duration of the party including set up/clear away. Notices will be sent out about this to all residents. We will also need volunteers to marshal this during the party to ensure kids are safe if they are playing on the road, walking down to the basketball court etc

If you have any ideas/would like to volunteer to help on the day please let us know: firstname.lastname@example.org
(This will be happening instead of the family fun morning that normally takes place on the last Saturday of the month)
