Marcus Bruton says, "A firm memory of my childhood is the Silver Jubilee celebration in 1977. I remember the mug and the food out in the streets around my home. I want my children to remember the Diamond Jubilee in much the same way. So the St Johns Residents Association is looking into the feasibility of having a 'parish' party in Alma Vale Road over the Jubilee weekend.
"I would love to hear from residents as to their views and memories. It is these events that make us British so we should get out - rain or shine - and celebrate Queen Elizabeth's reign which has been truly inspirational."
