Cowleigh Road Street Party - Dancing in the Rain

Cowleigh Road Street Party - Dancing in the Rain

First published in Your Jubilee

On Sunday 3rd June Cowleigh Road had a street party. It was an extremely wet day, there were torrents of water running down the sides of the road and the rain was pouring down. The road was decorated with lots of bunting criss-crossing the street and the barriers even had balloons! There were lots of games to play, but everyone took shelter in The Star. There were tables groaning with food. The Town Crier opened the party and everyone danced in the rain in the road.

All the children were given a special Diamond Jubilee mug with ‘Diamond Jubilee 2012, Street Party Cowleigh Road, Malvern, Sunday 3rd June’ written on it.

We all had a really good, wet, time and I will remember it always.

The Cowleigh Rd Street party was a resounding success despite the rain. In David's picture you can see Les Hall(with large hat) to the right of the lady in green. Les Hall was one of the prime movers and shakers responsible for organising the party. Les a well known local character has run Malvern Studios on Cowleigh Rd for over 50 yrs. Les's business gave crucial financial and practical support to the event along with contributions from two other local businesses, The Hair Shop and Miscellany Antiques, and also many private individuals. Les is a generous, fun loving individual with a store of amusing stories drawn from his life in the antiques trade. He gave a short talk about his life later in the afternoon.

Many thanks to all the individuals who supported the event and also the other local businesses I personally know of and neglected to mention earlier namely The Tile Shop.
