Right Royal Party for a Royal Occasion

As the Queen celebrated a stunning 60 year duration on the throne this weekend, Shrewsbury certainly celebrated in a suitably regal style thanks to the Shrewsbury Lions street party in the Quarry Park held on bank-holiday Monday.

Hundreds if not thousands of people joined in with the Royal celebrations to help make the atmosphere bustling throughout the day. Avenues of decorated tables were set-up by the Lions and Shrewsbury streets were invited to rent a make-shift street for the day in return for a small fee. Thus enabling communities to reunite for the day in the beautiful setting of the Quarry and have fun together with people from other neighbourhoods.

Plenty of entertainment was on offer to excite and interest people of all ages - with a bouncy castle, fun fair and jugglers just a few of the activities on offer. There were also numerous games and competitions for visitors to participate in, plus no shortage of clowns and childrens entertainers.

The Shrewsbury Lions organised the event solely with the purpose of community at heart and they certainly succeeded. Hosting such a large street party for approximately 1300 people in modern society is not necessarily an easy thing to accomplish at first and even despite cloudy weather, they managed to pull off a right Royal knees-up that the Queen would hopefully be proud of!
