Celebrating The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee

Dropped off a very excited little A to school today, wearing a gorgeous blue silk Alice dress by Pale Cloud, white cardigan and gold shoes, with a bright red rose in her hair -and the British flag waiving in her hand. Perhaps she is right when she says that a part of her is indeed become British after living most of her life here.
The school invited to a “street party” today to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. All were to dress in blue, white and red, there were lots of party food being brought in, flags garlands waving across the school ground, lots of excited party dressed children entering the gates -think the weekends party has begun!

Marking 60 years of The Queen’s reign, the Diamond Jubilee celebrations will take place around an extended weekend on 2, 3, 4 and 5 June. Communities all around the country will be celebrating and there will be many ways to get involved in local events. Netmums have local boards with useful information for families.
But if we were to stay in London we would have gone to the Diamond Jubilee Street Party taking place in Bermondsey Street. The street will be closed to traffic, tables and chairs laid out, dress up in 1950′ style (best outfit will win a prize), St Mary Magdalen church bells peal; Diamond Jubilee, picnic and 1950’s live music, cake tasting and cake competition and other children’s activities. Bermondsey Street, Long Lane to Tanner Street 1.00pm – 5.30pm, Monday 4th June 2012
