Forest residents celebrate the Jubilee
That’s the Jubilee community spirit
It was party all the way for hundreds of residents living in homes provided by Gloucestershire and Herefordshire community organisation Two Rivers.
Residents and staff from the not-for-profit community group got together to celebrate across the area, with the 900 residents living in the organisation’s 21 supported housing schemes really putting on a good show.
Here are just a few examples:
- At Rylelands Road in Bream in the Forest of Dean resident’s held a right royal tea party.
- At Rowandean in Cinderford residents made a musical journey down memory lane dressing as rabbits to sing “Run Rabbit Run”.
- In Penby Lawn in Newnham on Severn the residents had great fun wearing Royal masks and toasting the Royal couple.
Chris Clarke, who lives at Rowandean, got together with her sisters Carole and Pam to make the Rowandean event go with a swing.
“We all live in Two Rivers communities – I’m here in Rownadean, Carole lives in the Keelings in Coleford and Pam lives at the Laureldean in Sling.
“We did everything together. We prepared all the bunting for the 20 bungalows in Rowandean by hand, cutting it out from old red white and blue material. We even made 600 red white and blue paper flowers.
“We were dancing out in the streets and the little ones were dancing along with us. There was plenty of food and drink. It was absolutely brilliant. It brought everyone together including some people who usually keep themselves to themselves,” she said.
