Royal Jubilee celebrations were ‘a let down’

EDITOR - Congratulations to the Town Management for a fabulous Jubilee celebration - I don’t think so!

Take the Lumley Road street party. This consisted of a number of street stalls who paid for the privilege. This is no different to a summer Sunday in Tower Gardens, but still a thankyou to all the holders who turned out on such a wet day.

One of the questions asked by members of the public was, ‘Where are the decorations?’

Once again a big thankyou to the Hildreds who put on a magnificent display to entertain visitors and local alike.

Also thanks to the organisers of the street parties in the town who helped to make it a day to remember.

The final insult to the day was the failure to light the town’s beacon.
