New Zealand Way, Rainham celebrates Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in style

Tracy O’Sullivan and Lorraine Miller, organisers of the New Zealand Way street party in Rainham, were really pleased with their event’s turnout – and enjoyed getting to know all their neighbours.

“Half the street has come out, and even the people who couldn’t make it donated,” said Tracy.

“We’ve had a raffle for Little Havens Children’s Hospice and raised �82.

“We’d like to thank Aaron from Funkbar, who donated all the DJ equipment.”
