We were proud and happy to support the Coniston jubilee street party by sponsoring the street entertainer.
This unique event in Coniston’s history, resulting from closing the main road for about 4 hours! Was enjoyed by young and old alike.
It was great to see so many visitors mixing with the locals and great to see the huge amount of food brought by everybody for everyone.
A huge vote of thanks goes to the organising committee and the Parish council for taking the old initiative to put on this special, very enjoyable event.
Well done everyone!
