Useful advice for Jubilee party celebrations
West Oxfordshire groups looking to hold celebration events for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee can get advice from the District Council on how to plan them.
The council has issued a guide on its website with tips and advice that provides information about organising an event.
It includes downloadable forms for applying for road closures, event licensing as well as a practical guide.
Cllr Richard Langridge, Cabinet Member for Communities, said: “Street parties play a big part in this country’s history and we want to support groups looking to plan get-togethers.
“We want to minimise bureaucracy and provide as much support as possible for groups planning events, so they can get on with enjoying the festivities during this special year.”
The council is anticipating a host of community-based events with the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee weekend (2-5 June) falling on the same weekend as the annual Big Lunch and Beacon lighting.
As well as offering safety advice and information on licensing, the council is also providing litter picking equipment to encourage communities to keep their areas clean and tidy.
