More royal wedding parties

TWO more applications for street parties show that Hucknall is starting to get into the spirit of the upcoming royal wedding.

Last month, the Dispatch reported on party plans for Green Close, where sisters Beryl Tomlinson and Shirley Williamson are staging a bash to mark the marriage of Prince William and Kate Middleton on Friday April 29.

Now we have learned that residents of Meadow Croft Gardens and Pagett Close have applied to close off the streets for community parties.

A big Picnic In The Park event, with a royal-wedding theme, is also planned for Titchfield Park on Saturday April 30 (12.30 pm to 6 pm).

Yesterday (Thursday), children at Leen Mills Pre-School Playgroup held their own street party.
