Queen's Platinum Jubilee Party - Pop in to the Lord Tredegar tonight or tomorrow @7PM for a chat

Last December Tower Hamlets Council launched the Jubilee Celebration Events Fund for events and parties to celebrate the Queen's Platinum Jubilee. In the past Meotra have celebrated the 1977 and 2002 Jubilees with street parties and we would love to do the same again this Summer centred around the Lord Tredegar.

It has been a rotten couple of years where our usual Meotra events haven't been possible, but finger's crossed we can put on a good "do" this Summer and bring us together as a community.

The Jubilee weekend is 4 days long from Thursday 2nd June to Sunday 5th June and we would like to hold our celebrations on one of these days with the whole of the MEOTRA community invited. MEOTRA approached the the Lord Tredegar (the Pub not the person) about this a few weeks ago and they are onboard.

The deadline for the grant application is Monday 31st January at NOON and we are keen to hear from anyone ASAP who would like to be involved in whatever capacity and/or just wants to put forward their ideas. Some of us will be in the Lord Tredegar tonight and tomorrow (that's Wednesday 26th and Thursday 27th) from 7PM for 45 mins or so to look at options. Pop along and have a chat. Just ask for us at the bar.

We are hopeful of obtaining the £500 grant and Meotra could donate something like £1000 from our reserves.

As mentioned in a previous article on 22nd December in memoriam to Stan Jones when I discussing the street party ideas with a friend, Stan was always a key part of the celebrations and they meant so much to him. It would be great to find a way to honour Stan on the day.

I hope to see some of you either tonight or tomorrow to answer any queries or just exchange ideas 😃
