    i remember as an 8 year old attending a proper street party for the diana wedding. the whole street was closed off, benches down the middle of the road, street cordoned off, everyone living in the street partying. dont see anything like that happening now.

    You’ve got a short memory Rudi, there was loads of exactly that sort of thing in Abingdon (despite the rain) for the Queens golden anniversary, which was only about 5 years ago

    Yeah, I agree Iain; why didn’t you organise one Rudi?

    On a wider note, Saturday 24 June is the “Great Get-together” Day – started last year in memory of Jo Cox. In Abingdon there is a big tea-party with musicians, children’s activities etc or people can organise their own “Connect4Jo event – street parties, walks etc – more details on More in Common Facebook page.
