East Hatley Street Party
11th June 2016

To celebrate the Queen's 90th birthday on 11th June, we held a street party in the road and parking area outside the bungalows in East Hatley – being traffic free it was the ideal place for the event.

It was organised by East Hatley residents Linda Hudson and Mervyn Lack, Eddie and Ann Roach and John and Sue Wright.  On behalf of the 49 (or was it 50?) residents and children who came and enjoyed themselves, thank you and well done!  Thanks, too, to everyone who supplied the great selection of food and drinks.
