"What a Lovely Jub-I-Lee Day"

After many months of strategic planning and countless meetings, Neil Charlick had finally succeeded in organising one of the most spectacular events in our GSA history, the Platinum Jubilee Street Party, Gillingham.


Neil structured members of the team to ensure that each part was supervised and manned to aid in a smooth and successful operation and that; it most certainly was. We had some amazing photo opportunity posh chairs and of course our genius Sir Thomas Waghorn photo board, which were all quite popular, we supplied free soft drinks, hotdogs and burgers, a free tombola everyone was a winner and many people couldn't believe it was free, we had several other organisation's and displays there as well showing support and giving a fun and exciting environment to our community to come along and enjoy themselves for free.


We were also delighted and honored for The Mayor & Consort & The Town Crier


to also attend our event.
