Residents of Northwood, Northwood Hills and beyond all got together and enjoyed the celebrations with lots of music at the Jubilee Party in the Park.
Organised by both the Northwood and Northwood Hills Residents Association on the Northwood Recreation Ground, the event took place from 2-6pm on Thursday, June 2, the first day of the four-day weekend put forward to allow the nation to celebrate the Queen’s 70 years on the throne.
People of all ages enjoyed the music, which included Olde Skool, who performed many pop hits from the 50s and 60s, the Polka Dots, who sung 40s and 50s swing in a modern style and Cuttlefish, an alternative rock band.
The Yiewsley & West Drayton Brass Band and the CJ Edwards Band also performed to high spirits, with attendees also enjoying food stalls and children’s entertainment.
An appearance was also put in by the new mayor of Hillingdon, councillor Becky Haggar, with the event closing with a rousing rendition of the national anthem to mark the Platinum Jubilee.
Ros Plume, secretary at Northwood Residents Association, said: “The day went like clock-work, all of our detailed planning paid off, and the audience enjoyed an afternoon of live music in a convivial atmosphere.”
