Last chance to register to hold street party for Trafford Council's 40th birthday

Messenger Newspapers: Last chance to register to hold street party for Trafford Council's 40th birthday Last chance to register to hold street party for Trafford Council's 40th birthday

TRAFFORD Council is issuing a final call to residents to apply to hold street parties in celebration of its 40th birthday.


On April 1 1974, Trafford Metropolitan Council was formed, which created Trafford as a single borough.


Trafford Partnership and Trafford Council are celebrating this 40th year anniversary with a programme of activities that will celebrate everything that is great about Trafford.


On June 1 the council wants as many residents as possible to hold a ‘Big Trafford Lunch’, a day of street parties across Trafford.


Ideas include a Trafford themed party, dressing up as characters from areas such as Trafford Park or Dunham Massey, a sporting theme celebrating Trafford’s rich sporting heritage, or dressing as people that have put Trafford on the map in the past 40 years.


The council will support residents holding a Big Trafford Lunch on June 1 by:
 

• Providing Traffic Regulation Orders (TROs) free of charge (road closures)
• Paying the cost of public liability insurance
• Procuring professional road closure equipment


Those wanting to hold a street party must register by tomorrow, May 16.

This is the first time I have heard of this. As for take up, I wonder how many have applied? I am not sure of the loyalty that the Council has compared to Royal events.
