Appeal for Artillery Square residents to back jubilee celebrations

AN appeal has gone out to residents living in the Artillery Square area of Great Yarmouth to get behind celebration plans for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

The Artillery Square Residents’ Association is planning a street party with stalls and entertainment on Sunday, June 3, at the First Move meeting room and outside area.

Organisers want to get as many people involved as possible and are keen to see all community groups represented.

ASRA chairman Miranda Telfer said: “We want to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee and are trying to bring the residents together like in the seventies when we all had street parties.

“We are trying to do that in Artillery Square and we want people to know about the event and come and join. It is about getting out there and letting everybody know that something is going to be happening.

“We have started working groups and we want people not only to come to the event itself but to get on board now and help us develop it.

“We are thinking of a street party, cakes, and people bringing different foods together and we are going to have stalls. It will be a real community boost.
