James and Bethany Watts organised a street party for Chatsmore Crescent, Goring, ‘to bring the neighbours together during this uncertain time’. James said: “Residents decorated their balconies, porches and front gardens in Union Jack bunting, flags and red white and blue, ready for the big day. A lot of residents also dressed up in Union Jack colours, too. The entertainment consisted of music from the past, three games of street bingo with prizes up for grabs, Churchill’s speech at 3pm, and a street sing-a-long, which residents could join in with musical instruments. The day was concluded with a communal game of ‘play your cards right’. The event was very well received. It was nice to bring people together and make them feel part of one big family.”
