Effra street party 16th June: latest

retrostreetpartyMervan Road will be closed all day on Sunday 16th June for the global excitement that is the annual Effra Street Party. You heard it here first. Put it in your diary. That’s a mere two and a half months to go…

Everyone living in the surrounding streets is invited to come down for 1pm to share food and drink with neighbours. Bring a chair and a dish to share. We hope we’ll all be able to sit down together.

After that, there’ll be music and dancing, stuff to keep the kids amused (including, probably the fire engine and possibly chess lessons….), and refreshment available courtesy of our very own Effra Hall. And yes, Fit and the Conniptions will be back to strut their stuff by popular demand.

If you like performing, cooking, singing, dancing, or have an activity you’d like to share, this is your moment. You can email your ideas to effrablog[at]gmail.com or just comment on this story. Or come to the next planning meeting – Thursday 18th April at 8pm at Wendy’s house on 23 Rattray Road

The children are doing the publicity. Watch out for their posters.
