In celebration of Her Majesty’s 90th birthday, a Street Party was held for both the children and the Senior Citizens of Edwardstone, Groton and Boxford. Approximately 250 had tea in all, and a good many others came along to see what was happening.
The children had bouncy castles, a carousel, chairoplanes and a huge inflatable slide http://www.countyfetes.co.uk/pages/chairoplanes4fun/inflatables.htm, as well as a stall run by Mr. Toby. There was also Steff from Steff and Nonsense http://www.steffandnonsense.co.uk/ who came along with her ‘Bubble Magic’ and balloon sculpting. I think every child had a model of some sort by the end. Belle from Beauty and the Beast also posed for photographs with the children. Tea was then provided, we sang the National Anthem and Happy Birthday to the Queen. The Senior Citizens had more cake and tea than they’d ever seen!
None of this would have been possible without the generosity of all the helpers and donations. Huge thanks to Melanie at Tesco, Natalie & Frances at Sainsbury’s, Sharon at Walkers/Pepsi (Copella), Richard Rendell at Boxford Suffolk Farms http://www.peakefruit.co.uk/index.html and Will at The Coffee Box, who donated nearly all the food and soft drink among other things, and to Boxford Parish Council for their financial support.
