Jubilee Jamboree - Thanks for the memories!

Our rough and ready group photo -from concept to execution in under 2 mins.

If you came along on Sunday we really hoped you enjoyed our Jamboree.

We aimed for it to be fun, free, inclusive and hyper-local. We think we succeeded on all those objectives, but what do you think?

Please take a moment to feedback your thoughts using this really short online form. You can do it anonymously, but a name/email would be appreciated. The day wouldn't have been possible without our army of volunteers. We would like to take this opportunity to thank those who helped out in so many ways:

So thanks to Barbara, Cathy, Celyn, Cheryl, Colleen, Diana, Gail, Javinda (and son-in-law), Joan, John, Maggie, Margaret, Michelle, Neel, Nicky, Pritam, Sarah, Steph, Sue, Vivien, Xiaoling (and hubby). And if we have left anyone out then a massive apologies and let us know. It was a team effort and put together by volunteers giving their time and energy for nothing..

Thanks to The Lord Tredegar, The Pizza Room and The Greedy Cow for donating prizes and to Tower Hamlets Council for some funding of £500.

Thanks to the Mile End Park team for the loan of tables and chairs, Angela from theHac for even more tables and chairs, and last but not least thank you to Musa who is our local street cleaner. He came along on his one day off because “It is my patch, and if I don’t do it today, I’ll have to do it on Monday”. He is a legend who many will remember him for keeping going throughout lockdown whilst we were "doing the WFH".

Mum I'm on the telly!

We made the BBC News Website and BBC London News (see just after the Red Arrows and 19 minutes in) and were interviewed by the a French national paper, who particularly liked our Splat The Royal Rat manned by republicans. How is that for inclusivity!

Take a look at our photo album and please let us know ( if you have any more photos to add
