Huge jubilee street party bid

A massive street party to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee is being planned for Shrewsbury.

Local businessman Ian Tay, who runs wine shop 2 Bear Steps, is hoping to put on the event in Fish Street on June 5. He is now on the lookout for other traders and local residents to help him put on the party.

Mr Tay said: “It has been suggested that we may have a party in the centre of Shrewsbury to celebrate the Queen’s 60th anniversary and Fish Street has been put forward as a suitable location for enjoyment and minimal disruption to other residents.”

He said he had provisionally approached the relevant authorities, but said that if anybody had any strong objections could they get in touch as soon as possible.

Mr Tay is also on the lookout for volunteers to act as stewards, as well as donations of raffle prizes. For more details about the  party, contact Mr Tay on (01743) 440701 or email him on
