Breckland residents urged to celebrate 2012 in style
Bring out the bunting, cakes and flags!
Communities in the Dereham area are being challenged to organise street parties next year to mark the Queen’s diamond jubilee and the London Olympics.
At a full meeting of Breckland Council, members were urged to encourage public celebrations among families across the district.
Nigel Wilkin, council chairman, said: “It is a shame that a lot of places in Breckland didn’t have a street party for this year’s royal wedding, but we are getting ahead of the game this year.”
And Cat Lang, community development officer for Breckland Council, added: “There should be no barriers for holding a street party.”
