Residents urged to climb aboard Arriva's Jubilee street party contest
Arriva Buses is giving residents planning commemorative street parties the chance to win a Diamond Jubilee to remember by taking part in a special competition.
The bus company is giving one lucky person the opportunity to scoop a street party - in the form of a special Arriva Jubilee street party bus.
The bus will be packed with a whole host of commemorative items, including Union flags, bunting and deck chairs, party poppers, pitchers of Pimms, pots of tea and tiers of cakes, Diamond Jubilee crowns and hats and red, white and blue balloons. The winning party planners will also be given a time capsule to enable them to capture their special moment.
Residents have until May 25 to enter the competition by telling Arriva in no more than 100 words, why they deserve for the Jubilee street party bus to pull up on their road between June 2 and 5.
Marketing Manager, Nick Gordon, said: “We know that plenty of people will want to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee so we thought we’d give them a helping hand by bringing the party to them.
“We’re on the look-out for entries from people of all ages over the coming weeks. Whether they be from individuals, families, groups of neighbours or community groups, get in touch and tell us why you’d like Arriva to help make your street party extra special.”
Entrants must be planning to hold their commemorative street parties between June 2 and 5. People can submit their entries by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 0845 270 1660 by May 25.
