Getting to know your neighbours
CELEBRATING The Queen's Diamond Jubilee has given more than 100 neighbours the chance to get to know each other.
Gordon's Girlies Plus One is the organising committee for a street party being held for residents of Gordon Road, Nelson Road and Little Woodlands, Windsor, on Tuesday, June 5.
After a couple of meetings and a leaflet drop in the three roads advertising the plans and appealing for volunteers to help co-ordinate events, neighbours are already experiencing the benefits of a friendlier atmosphere around their homes.
Mick Whittington, 57, is the only man on the committee, which meets on Monday evenings in each other homes. He said: "We had a street party for VE Day and for a while after that everyone waved to each other and said 'hello' more often in the street. It is a very British thing to do I think but people don't know their neighbours too well these days."
The party will feature a Tug of War, barbecue and lots of Union Jack bunting.
Lisa Kandolha, who moved to Windsor six months ago from Chiswick, said: "This party has really given me the chance to get to know people and helped us settle in."
