Holiday Inn Express in St Albans hosted 60 longstanding members of the London Colney community to raise funds for Churches Together Foodbank, providing food and additional help to those in need.

Local volunteer group, Our Street Party St Albans District, had supported more than half of the district’s street parties since holding free zoom information sessions in February. They loaned out more than 180 road closed signs, funded by Oakman Inns, local county councillors and St Albans City and District Council.

Ahead of the bank holiday weekend, local schools like Beechwood Park, Fleetville Infants and The Lea held Jubilee events for their pupils to get into the festive spirit.

The Lea children spent the week learning the national anthem, making crowns, creating Union Jack flags, and decorating paper plates in readiness for the Jubilee tea party on the school playground. The whole school came together wearing red, white and blue and the afternoon was then spent playing various traditional games such as oranges and lemons, hopscotch, skipping, tag and hula hooping.

Headteacher James Berry said: "Our children loved taking part and we’re sure this is something they’ll always remember."

At Beechwood Park all 553 pupils - including those in Woodlands Nursery -, joined by staff, came together to create a Union Jack flag on the front lawn, kicking off a full day of celebrations, including a 1950s style sports day and picnic.

Fleetville Infants arranged for the closure of adjacent Royal Road for a massive street party, complete with live music.

Residents can find support for organising a street party at ourstreetparty.org/stalbans.
