Free St George’s Day and Royal Wedding party packs
Crawley Borough Council is giving away celebration packs for St George’s Day and Royal Wedding street parties.
Residents and community groups can apply for the packs, which include handheld flags, bunting, balloons, hats and a large flag.
Each pack caters for 25 people but they are limited so the council is advising party organisers to get in touch and apply as soon as possible.
St George’s Day is Saturday April 23 and the Royal Wedding takes place on Friday April 29. Celebratory events could include street parties, a children’s party, a tea dance, bingo – or anything that involves members of the community.
Phil Rogers, Director of Community Services at Crawley Borough Council, said: “We know that across the town many people and groups are thinking of putting on street parties or other celebrations for St George’s Day and the Royal Wedding.
“We want to support these people by giving them party kits to help bring neighbours and communities together at these celebrations and to ensure they go with a bang.”

Applicants who are successful must pick up their party pack from the Town Hall. Packs are limited to one per applicant and will be provided on a first come, first served basis.
If any packs remain they will be offered for future events including the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee next year and the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
