Park Parade Jubilee Party June 2nd

June 2, 2012

Today the Leigh Park Traders Association put on an excellent Jubilee party in Park Parade.

Although the official opening was at 11 o’clock, when Elaine & I arrived at 10.45 the whole of Park Parade was a sea of people, many of them in red, white and blue costumes.

We were able to walk round to see the many stalls and shops, and to speak to a lot of people. The Havant MP, David Willets, was there along with several of the local councillors.

The atmosphere was one of great enjoyment, and it was wonderful to see so many people thoroughly enjoying themselves in weather that was not too hot.

The Traders Association, which was only established last September, must be very pleased with the way the event went and, hopefully, they will find reasons for more in the future.
