Residents and local communities

planning to hold a street party in central London to celebrate the Royal

Wedding should apply as early as possible, Westminster Council urged

today.

With 100 days to go

until the grand occasion, people can receive free advice from the

council on how to hold a street party to celebrate Prince William and

Kate Middleton’s wedding on April 29th and over the long Bank Holiday

weekend.

Street party

organisers wishing to close a road will need check with the council

first to ensure that alternative routes are available for traffic and

emergency vehicles.

Organisers

may also need to arrange with their neighbours to park elsewhere

locally to clear the street for the day of their party.

Westminster’s

special events team can also advise party planners on a range of issues

including if licences are needed - and how best to inform and involve

the wider community.

Leader

of Westminster Council Cllr Colin Barrow said they wanted to support the

local community with the minimum of fuss to ensure that everybody can

enjoy the wedding celebrations.

Cllr

Barrow said: "The Royal wedding is one of the most important events in

the country's history, and we want as many people as possible to join

in.

"We expect thousands of

people will want to come together in Westminster and for our residents

and local communities to follow the great British tradition of holding a

street party.

"We are

working with the Metropolitan Police, Transport for London, Royal Parks

and other agencies to assist the happy couple's wishes for a celebration

to ensure that their day is memorable for everyone.”

    I reckon you should have a street party just for the sake of it! Who cares about Will & Kate? I couldn't give a monkeys myself!
