Street Party Planning

Although www.streetparty.org.uk is a helpful site, it is also a good idea to seek assistance from a local resident who has organised a street party before. 8 people pulled together to plan The Round Hill Society's 10th Anniversary Street Party.

Roads we have closed off before include D'Aubigny Road, Mayo Road and on rarer occasions Crescent Road. If one of the organisers lives in the selected street, it helps with the availability of electric power, safe overnight storage, etc.

Plenty of help is needed.

Below is the checklist from The Round Hill Society's
