From street parties to fun days, residents across Wednesfield came together to celebrate the Queens Diamond Jubilee.

Ashmore Park enjoyed a celebration with over 1,500 people attending which was opened by the Deputy Mayor Cllr Jaspal and Deputy Mayoress Mrs Jaspal.

Despite the cold weather there was a great turn out, with people enjoying activities such as the bouncy castle, bucking bronco, face painting, laser quest, a community art project, Punch and Judy, balloon animals, magician and tombola, with a celebratory soundtrack and fun provided by WCR community radio.

Events during the day included a 5 a side football competition, Bubbles cheerleaders,  a Zumba Flash mob, the Grey Coll Pipe Band and Essington Park Village Silhouettes.

Much needed hot drinks were provided by the Anglican Catholic and Baptist Churches and Shaz’s Baps were on had to provide hot food. St John’s Ambulance Brigade were on hand in case of any emergencies.

Local resident Laurence Fletcher contacted WV11 and said:

“I saw how much hard work was done to plan, organise and carry out the event from the Ashmore Park Community Together, WV11.co.uk and the Local Neighbourhood Partnership. The programme listed loads of people who supported it too. It was a brilliant afternoon.”

Other events included a Fun Day at Long Knowles community centre with another 150 people celebrating and street parties on Tithe Road and outside the tenants meeting room on Moat House Lane East.
