Diamond Jubilee celebrations in South West London unfurl in style with James Pendleton Estate Agents
9:38am Wednesday 13th June 2012 in Wandsworth
True to form, the weather remained steadfastly drizzly during the Diamond Jubilee weekend, but good cheer was in the air! As Wandsworth and Lambeth residents set up street parties and lined the river banks in anticipation of the largest floating pageant in history, James Pendleton Estate Agency was very proud to be involved in such an amazing event. Being towards the start of the royal route, the Battersea Park area overflowed with visitors waiting to see the flotilla in its early stages. At James Pendleton Estate Agents’ Battersea Park office, the team joined in wholeheartedly with the celebrations, offering up home-made cupcakes and Jubilee balloons to local residents and tourists.
Away from the river the streets of South West London were awash with cake, Pimm’s and bunting as The Queen’s loyal citizens celebrated her Highness’ Diamond Jubilee in style. The borough of Wandsworth held more street parties than any other in the UK and James Pendleton helped to ensure that local events went off with a bang. The ‘Award Winning Estate Agents’ were a firm presence at parties in Clapham, Battersea and Wandsworth, supplying events on Collamore Avenue, Lysias Road, Burntwood Grange Road and Wakehurst Road with sponsorship, balloons and goodies.
The organisers of Wandsworth and Lambeth’s many street parties did an amazing job of bringing neighbourhoods together producing fantastic food and atmosphere, and above all giving community cohesion the publicity it deserves. The James Pendleton team can testify that a fabulous time was had by all as raincoats were donned, cupcakes demolished and neighbours united. Take a look at some of the photos captured by the team and their neighbours, and raise your glass of Pimm’s to 2012, a fantastic year for London!
