Starting to get requests to promote Queen’s Diamond Jubilee parties around the neighbourhood.  Lambeth’s website for official stuff is here http://www.lambeth.gov.uk/Services/AboutLambeth/WhatsOn/Queens+Diamond+Jubilee.htm

On Sunday 3rd June we will probably all be down by the river in the afternoon – watching the flotilla of boats. Apart from that, here are some ‘public’ local parties that I’m aware of.  These are primarily for local people, family and friends so it is probably best to attend the one you have the strongest connection with.  I’ll try and update this article as new information emerges.
