Everytime there has been a special royal occasion, Sandylands Church was keen to throw a party. My role within this varied, but with a whole lot of activities and volunteers to organise it needed to bring a team together to make it happen. In 2016 the street party focus was welcoming those people back from flooding and encouraging those who were not yet back. Oh and the Queen had a 90th Birthday. Lots of people came together from the church and community to throw a party – it was a great time to bring people together who had been apart for such a long time. We threw a street party for William and Katherine’s wedding – which brought people out again in the community to celebrate together.
