The Liverpool neighbourhood hosting its first ever street party for the Queen’s Jubilee

By Eleanor Dye

Residents are planning to host their first ever street party to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in June.

People living on Minver Road and Bevan’s Lane in West Derby have organised a host of activities for the event on June 3, including bouncy castles, face painting, music and games. They will even hold a crown-decorating competition for the children to help everyone get into the party spirit.

The celebration will last for six hours, from 12pm to 6pm – with the road closed from 10am. Jacqui Whelan, who is helping to organise the party, said the people of Minver Road have wanted to hold such a community event for a while and the jubilee seemed like the perfect opportunity to do so.

Jacqui has lived on Minver Road on and off since 1976 but this is the first time there has been a party for the whole road. She said: “It’s such a relief to be able to bring everyone together again and celebrate and it’s a luxury after lockdown.

“Everybody’s been doing their bit to help plan it. There’s a few people who live alone who are especially looking forward to it. All the children are absolutely delighted too.”

The organisers are expecting a turnout of around 60 children and have organised a variety of old-fashioned games for them to play, including a sack race and an egg and spoon race. The children will get wristbands and a commemorative coin with Minver Road and Bevan’s Lane on the back so they can remember the event for years to come.

The adults will also have much to look forward to as there will be a barbeque and the street will be decorated with bunting.

Jacqui hopes it will be a warm welcome for those who have moved into the road since lockdown – and for friends and relatives. A committee of 12 volunteers who live on the road started planning the party around four weeks ago.

There has been a community effort to organise and fundraise for the celebration. Some people have been selling raffle tickets, while others lobbied for funds and contacted the council.

The committee even hosted a bingo night, where everyone had a “brilliant time” while raising a further £140.

The committee is arranging a time capsule, which will include paper clippings, paintings done by the children and photos. It will also have a list of all the people who live on the road and their house numbers.

Jacqui said: “We thought it would be a nice touch in years to come.”
