Street parties are a fun and safe way for people to meet their neighbours, especially for those who rarely get out, and it’s not as difficult or expensive as you may think to put one on in your neighbourhood.
Reading Voluntary Action (RVA) and Reading Neighbourhood Network (RNN) are delivering four more workshops across Reading for anyone interested in running a street party in 2020. Please help us spread the word by putting up a poster or handing out flyers to colleagues, neighbours, volunteers and service users.
The workshops will cover
- getting started
- ideas for games and activities
- getting the neighbours involved
- food and drink
- getting permission to close your street (for free) and other legal stuff
