editorial image

FUN, friendship and community spirit shone through at a street party staged on Naomi Crescent in Bulwell to herald the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

Resident Blossom Heron was the driving force behind the ‘right royal’ attraction, with support from Pam Bailey, Janet Ward, Dee Johnson, Meg Rowe and Bev Oliver.

The group and many others made sure that everyone who turned out for the celebration had a fun-filled afternoon.

A banquet, laid on specially for the occasdion, was hailed as being fit for a queen.

Everyone who took part provided food, including cakes, sandwiches, trifle and drinks.

Revellers wore the colours red, white and blue and enthusiastically waved Union Jack flags.

Other attractions included singing and dancing competitions and face-painting as the fun went on until 1 am.

A raffle and tombola raised money for the British Heart Foundation and Cancer Research UK.

Blossom said: “It went brilliantly.”
