Aylsham will have another market place street party this summer, following the success of similar parties last year for the Queen’s 90th birthday and in 2012 for the Diamond Jubilee.

The “bring your own” Sunday lunch will be held on June 11 from noon to 5pm and follow the same format as 2016.
This year, a Big Lottery Fund grant of £1,886 under the Celebrate England banner will help fund the event, plus a £500 grant from Broadland District Council.

This means there will be little or no expenditure for the town council to find from its own budgets, explained town clerk Sue Lake.

So far, popular rock and pop covers band Agent Orange have been booked to play at the party, with further details of other entertainment to come soon.

“The success of both 2012 and 2016 meant we were very keen to have a repeat,” said Mrs Lake.

“The lunch shows Aylsham in its true colours of community spirit and we are all very much looking forward to June 11.”

Booking forms can be found on the town council website – booking is mandatory.

Everyone in Aylsham is invited to the lunch, although it will be on a first-come, first-served basis through the booking system.
