Thank You From Deben Road
The organisers of Deben Road Street Lunch Party, held for the first time on Saturday 29th July and which proved to be a great success, would like to say a huge thank you to their amazing neighbours for such a wonderful day.
The atmosphere was relaxed and many people enjoyed the afternoon sunshine, although not so keen on the downpour later on! Neighbours on Deben Road got together for the first time to get to know one another. Trestle tables, chairs and bunting lined the street. Thank you to their neighbour Ben Osbourne for providing the music and to Peter Hepworth for playing his guitar and singing for them.
Everyone brought food for the barbecue and other dishes, and they had a wonderful feast together. Children were playing on the street with face paints, hook the duck, apple bobbing and other games. The favourite for the children must have been the treasure hunt. The scarecrow competition also went down well. Thank you to Councillor Caroline Page and Peppy Barlow for judging the competition.
They were delighted to raise £357.91 for the NSPCC. Your generosity has made a difference to children and young people lives.
The organisers would like to thank all the loyal band of helpers, stall minders, cake makers, friends, families and all who willingly gave their time and effort to make the street party such a roaring success. Thank you all once again.
