Croydon hokey cokey and limbo give MP a laugh
A street party in Croydon saw many, including an MP, join in the Hokey Cokey and join the party mood.
Organiser Marty Woods said: "Despite what the weather looked like we decided to go ahead in our street. Thankfully it didn’t rain from 10am to 4.30pm. We were delighted at least 60 turned up all with food to share.
We all sang the 3 verses of the National Anthem and then joined together in saying the Grace together. No resistance from anyone. It felt like a sacred moment. The quizzes and resources worked well as did the games especially the tug of war with one street against another. By the end of the day the children were doing the Limbo and many of the adults were dancing in the rain.W
Both the Croydon Mayor and their local MP dropped by as they were finishing up. They both commented on the level of community they experienced.. This was the Mayor of Croydon’s 12th of 13 Street Parties that weekend. Both joined in the rain for the final Hokey Cokey. The highlight for many children was to be presented by the Mayor with the Certificates that were produced.
