King’s Coronation Weekend – Time to Celebrate

The recent bank holiday weekend marked the crowning of King Charles and Queen Consort Camilla which brought communities together to share friendship, food and fun and the Simple Life neighbourhoods were no different.

Following the success of last year, Simple Life extended an offer once again to support their communities in commemorating the historic moment. Simple Life offered a voucher of up to £200 to each development to contribute towards food & drinks, decorations or whatever’s needed to make those parties pop!

From face-painting to football to music and delicious food, residents were bringing the community cheer from different corners of the country. Down in Houghton Regis, neighbours gathered outside their homes and made the most of a Sunny afternoon.

Karen said:

“Thank you so much for this, it really helped us put on a fab street party with around 30 neighbours coming together to celebrate. We were extremely lucky with the weather, and everyone came together and chatted, ate and drunk the afternoon away. Thanks again to Simple Life for helping to fund this”

Over in Rochdale, the streets were alive with the sound of celebrations with decorated homes and fantastic activities for both adults and children.

Fidelma from Brookside Grange said:

“It went so well; everyone said it was lovely bringing all the community together. We had face painting the children loved it. Barry hart my next-door neighbour he runs a football club for Rochdale lads (united for mental health). He is an ex-football player and a coach now he showed the Kids how to kick and shoot with a large net. The children loved every bit of it – Thank you Barry!

“The girls all wore tiaras and the boys had wands. Everyone said how nice the food was and the cakes were delicious. We decorated all the houses and trees. Everyone got an invite I’d say around 35 turned out. Even though it rained, we at Brookside know how to party  thank you Simple Life from everyone!”

Other developments to benefit were Woodford Grange, Winsford and Queen Victoria Place, Blackburn. A big well done to all those that organised and worked hard to create these fantastic events for their neighbours!
