Where roads will close for street parties as area gears up for Platinum Jubilee

STREET parties will take place on several roads across the Frome Valley area over the Queen's Platinum Jubilee weekend.

South Gloucestershire Council has published a list of almost 100 closures approved across the district, so that residents can organise their own parties.

Drivers are being advised to avoid the roads for the duration of the closure orders, which may be in place for longer than street parties are taking place.

In the Frome Valley area, eight road closures have been advised for street parties over the weekend, including:

Friday June 3:

Sunnyside, Frampton Cotterell, 10am-9pm between numbers 9 and 21.

Saturday June 4:

Bradley Avenue, Winterbourne, 3-11pm between the Mount Crescent and Huckford Road junctions.

The Land, Coalpit Heath, midday-10pm between numbers 41 and 63.

Upper Stone Close, Frampton Cotterell, midday-11pm for its entire length.

Sunday June 5:

Friary Grange Park, Winterbourne, midday-9pm between the Parkside Avenue and Burrough Way junctions.

Camberley Drive and Stanford Close, Frampton Cotterell, 1pm-midnight, entire length of both roads.

Burrough Way, Linden Close and Heath Close, Winterbourne, 10am-6pm, Burrough Way from the Flaxpits Lane junction to Heath Close, both other roads closed entirely.

Rockside Gardens, Frampton Cotterell, midday-6pm, from number 24 to the far end.

 

Elsewhere in the district, a beacon will be lit at Tyler's Field, off Gravel Hill Road in Yate, at 9.45pm on Thursday June 2. The event starts at 8pm.

 

An RAF Battle of Britain Memorial Flight flypast involving a Hurricane, Spitfire and a Lancaster bomber – recently seen over Winterbourne Down Carnival – will be one of the highlights of the jubilee celebrations organised by Siston Parish Council at Warmley Forest Park on Friday June 3 from 1-9pm.

 

The historic aircraft are due to fly over the park shortly after 2.30pm, and there will also be a stage for performances from singers and bands, DJs, martial artists and cheerleaders, stalls and a licensed bar.

 

In Chipping Sodbury the Big Jubilee Lunch is being held in Broad Street, which will be closed to traffic on Sunday June 5 for the event from noon to 6pm. 

 

Described as "a traditional street party packed with free entertainment for all the family to enjoy", people are being invited to bring their own picnics, tables and chairs to watch live bands and dancing from Winterbourne Border Morris, Bristol Samba Band and Stapleton School of Dancing.
