British spirit is alive and well

I HAD the very good fortune to be invited to a friend’s street party in Northbourne Road on Tuesday.

There was such a happy atmosphere with all the residents joining in to make the day a success and the children were able to play safely in the road with their scooters and skates.

The music played and some couples were soon dancing. The food was plentiful and delicious.

We were honoured by the presence of the mayor and mayoress who stayed and joined in the fun for a long time, despite having another function to attend.

Thank you, Vic and all your helpers who showed us the real spirit that still exists in our wonderful British Isles.
