Have a Havering street party for the Royal Wedding

ANYONE wanting to hold a street party to celebrate the Royal Wedding can now get guidance on online.

From this week Havering Council is offering tips to people who want to celebrate Prince William and Kate Middleton’s big day with a gathering in their neighbourhood.

The council has also said it will deliver and pick up signage and cones for free for those streets which are closed.

Speaking at a meeting on Wednesday council leader Michael White (Con) said: “We will be doing our best to allow street parties to take place including the closing of roads where possible.

“It will not be possible to close all roads, but we will try to accommodate neighbourhoods.”
