Are you thinking of organising a street party for the Jubilee?

Party baloons and hatsCommunity Ward forums are taking place in Leytonstone next week, and with the Olympics and Diamond Jubilee coming up this could be a good time to attend one if you’ve never been before, especially if you’re thinking of organising a street party.

The meetings are open to individual residents, community groups and business representatives and are attended by local councillors. Each ward has £10,000 to spend each year on local initiatives. But this year the Council has given each ward an extra £5,000 under The Street Party Initiative. The closing date for applications for the Diamond Jubilee is 4 May 2012, so the Community Ward forums next week will be the last before this closing date.

More information about the Community Ward forums and street parties are on:

Dates and venues for ward meetings are:

Cann Hall and Cathall Joint Community Ward Forum

Tuesday 20 March 2012, 7.30pm – 9.30pm
Downsell Primary School
Downsell Road
E15 2BS

Leytonstone Ward Forum

Wednesday 21 March 2012, (no time given at time of this post)
St. John’s Church Hall

If you are organising a street party, add it to the Calendar and I’ll help you promote it through this site and Facebook and Twitter if you’d like me to (no cost!).


  1. I live on Colworth road and was informed about a street party on our street for the Jubilee. However, i can’t find the piece of paper given to me and want to know what day it is happening. Can anyone here help?
