There was a great deal of eating and drinking involved!!
The children all wore red,white and blue.......and had their faces painted.
They were all given flags and party blowers.....and had a parade.
A group photo......all the children were given a copy of a group photo as a permanent memento of the day.One of the best things about the day was how much fun the children had.....no tears or tantrums.....and not an electronic device in sight.....though someone did have the ingenious idea of putting a snooker table in their front garden for the older kids!!
Early evening the hot food arrived....and 2 BBQs were fired up.......yet more eating!!
And despite the mountain of food.......this was all that was left by 8pm
We managed to get eveything finished and tidied away just before the rain started.......and everybody agreed that a street party should be an annual event.
