These are photographs s of the Silver Jubilee Street Party held in Sedgewick Road, now called Bramble Way Hollingbury, in 1977. My mother had made a huge Union Flag cake and every one contributed some food to add to that provided by the tenant’s association. The SRC tennants association had worked on fund raising for the event, and made all the bunting. To their delight, every child was provided with a red, white and blue rosette.
The wind howled as it always does up on that hill and the rain only just kept off. Everyone joined in and ‘break off’ parties went on to the small hours. It was hard work but we enjoyed it and the whole community came together.
Do you remember this party? If you do, please leave a comment below.
