There's still time to organise a Jubilee party in your street
12:36pm Friday 13th April 2012 in Queen Elizabeth celebrates her diamond jubilee
More than 60 applications to hold Jubilee street parties across the county have been agreed so far by Wiltshire Council.
The majority of parties are taking place over the bank holiday weekend, June 2 to 5, and the deadline for applications for that period is Friday, April 20. Organising small private street parties and fetes is simple and generally does not include activities that need a licence, such as selling alcohol or providing certain types of entertainment.
To help make this as easy as possible, the council has produced a tool kit which provides guidance on how to hold a street party or community event.
There will be no charge for street party road closures.
The tool kit and application forms can be found at www.wiltshire.gov.uk/streetpartiesandfetes
