Sincil Bank community celebrates Jubilee

Sincil Bank residents will come together to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee with a street party On Friday 3 June.

Members of staff from Lincoln City Foundation have been working hard with residents and other local groups to organise a fun filled day.

Pupils from local schools St Peter at Gowts and Bishop King are creating bunting to decorate the area. On the day there will be a living statue, balloon modelling magician, an acoustic guitarist, improv comedy group, pin the tail on the corgi, and other fun games and crafts and will finish the day off with a visit from the city’s mayor.

With funding from the City of Lincoln Council, the Foundation and Sincil Bank Community Partnership have been able to organise the street party and support other local groups with different activities and events.
