Street Party Retirement

Posted at 12:08 pm under Uncategorized

The Time Has Come

After twenty years of being involved and running the Wye Christmas Street Party (a WBA initiative) we have made the decision to retire and hopefully hand the event over to a younger keen community minded group.

It has been a lot of fun, very rewarding and indeed a privilege.

Also retiring are Richard Blackford and Mary Barrett who for some years have run the BBQ. For this we thank them very much and hope they can now stop dreaming of burgers!

We would like to thank all those people who have supported this event.

How sad it would be if what has now become a twenty year old Wye tradition and a good way of raising funds for our community ceased.

It now needs a younger input to come forward and pick up the Street Party baton.

Peter will remain treasurer but it needs others to manage the event.

Ashford Borough Council require 12 weeks notice for the Road Closure and Clubs and Societies two months notice. Therefore mid August would be a good time to start planning.

Anyone from Wye interested please contact 812 671
