Jubilee Street Party

To celebrate the queens Diamond Jubilee, the South Reading Churches held a street party along Northumberland Avenue. The event was widely covered by the press in particular, ALexandra Gregg who is the Whitley reporter for the Reading Chronicle. The articles below appeared in paper on Thursday 7 June 2012.

As well as lending chairs and tables from the school for the event, a number of girls helped with hospitality on the day. Miss Edwards organised the girls, who were responsible for meeting and greeting the residents to the event, many stayed behind after their shift had finished to participate in the activities. There was a lot of coverage in the local press particularly from Alexandra Gregg at the Reading Chronicle.
