Residents at Crest Nicholson’s Nash Mills Wharf development in Hemel Hempstead have held a street party in honour of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee on Saturday 2nd June. The celebration took place on a communal lawn in the development and was organised by residents in the Francis Mews section of homes.

Mary Linklater, resident and organiser said: “Thanks to the layout of the homes at Nash Mills Wharf there is already a fantastic sense of community and my neighbours have been very enthusiastic about this event and in helping me organise it. There is a lawn in front of our homes that was crying out for a party and so we thought what could be a better occasion for celebration than the Jubilee.

“We dropped invitations into all of the surrounding houses and the party was a great success with everyone coming along and taking part. It was wonderful getting all generations together for the weekend and it has helped us build up an even better sense of community with our neighbours at Nash Mills Wharf.”
