Is anyone organising a Street Party in Penkridge on Sunday 12 June 2016?  
There will be a very big one in The Mall that day - what about here in Penkridge?

Family Picnic and Entertainment, Music and a Bar at the Haling Dene Centre 12noon to 4.30pm
full details HERE
- opening by the Town Crier

Please email the webmaster as I know several areas are considering it
.
Remember the ones we organised in the past?  Our Town Crier attended ones in Nursery Drive, Grange Crescent, Cherrybrook Estate, St. Modwena Way area, etc.
And don't forget to acquire lots of flags and bunting.   Make it an event to remember!

Speak to your neighbours - relatively easy to organise in cul-de-sacs but you can apply for a road closure too.
There are several guides to organising a street party on the Internet - just search for Street Party.
If you would like to use a Parish Council or District Council Open Space, then apply to them for permission.

The
Cross Keys Pub have notified us that they will be organising a Street Party - is anyone else?
