The Queen's Platinum Jubilee

Beam Park Street Party

Published: 01st Jul, 2022

On Friday 3 June, over 80 Beam Park residents pulled up a throne to join in royal celebrations for The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. A small section of road was closed to host the street party along Hart Way.

Present was a crowd of crowns, the perfect regal accessory to complete the jubilee themed red, white and blue outfits. Lots of creative young people crafted their own crowns decorated with all sorts of jewels. Some even dressed up as kings and queens. It seemed everyone was eager to get snapped up and have their picture featured in this issue of Beam Stream.

Neighbours shared their royal delights, serving a fanfare of homemade cakes and delicious bites. Anita Riungu from Anderson Way baked a delicious chocolate cake garnished with strawberries. Freshly baked scones were delivered by Aspire, Support, Learn (ASL). Residents smothered the scones with jam and clotted cream, a welcome treat washed down with tea or a glass of Pimm’s.

LDN Craft were on hand with their appropriately British themed London Mini Bar to help celebrate The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. A complimentary summer drinks menu on a hot day was a refreshing treat for residents that attended the event, kindly sponsored by Simple Life London.

Did someone say egg and spoon race? Yes! Some royally themed traditional games including a three-legged race and sack race were on offer. Some game competitors lined up to take part all for a bit of fun, refereed by Titilayo, Director of Education at Emmanuel Community School. Mark and Carolyn from Strangeboat were very jubilant, enjoying all the activities, happily chatting to residents and collecting lovely messages to post on their Gratitude Tree.

We’d like to send out a huge thank you to all our volunteers for their efforts in pulling the event together. Special thanks to Sammi Dines at Hart Way for her help organising the event and Jannate Rowsan who adorned many residents with some beautiful henna designs.
