Big scissors needed, but it was well worth it...

Royal Wedding street party in Pashley Road

We would like to say a really big thank you to Eastbourne Borough Council who managed to find some really sharp scissors to cut through the red tape that initially surrounded our street party plans.

Special thanks are due to the licensing team and those who provided the road closure paraphernalia and tables.

We would also like to thank the refuse collectors who fitted their collection in around the road closure; we really do appreciate that everyone went the extra mile.

The mayor, who nearly ran an extra mile in the egg and spoon race, deserves our particular thanks, as does Stephen Lloyd MP, who both joined us for a wonderful afternoon, which was made more special by them and everybody who came and joined in to make the event so much fun.
