LEISURE: Are you planning a street party to celebrate the Royal Wedding?
COMMUNITY groups in Sedgemoor are being reminded that help and advice is at hand if they are planning on holding a party later this year to celebrate the Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
The big day is on Saturday, May 19, 2018, and Sedgemoor District Council has said that it can help with information about the “do’s and don’ts” of planning a street party or event.
A council spokesman said: “Many people are already planning street parties with friends and neighbours.
“Street parties are a great way for communities to come together to celebrate special occasions or annual events such as The Big Lunch on June 3 and the Great Get Together over the weekend of June 22-24.”
You may need an Events Licence – please check with SDC’s Licencing team on https://www.sedgemoor.gov.uk/article/751/Temporary-Event-Notices or you may need a road closure – see https://www.sedgemoor.gov.uk/article/1307/Temporary-Road-Closures for information.
The council spokesman added: “The government has re-issued street party guidance to make it easier for people to organise local events.
“As well as our street party guidance, The Big Lunch and The Great Get Together have lots of tips and resources to help people plan their event.”
