Find out how to organise a street party - it is easy with our new guide.
Street parties and fetes are a traditional part of community life - they are a simple way for us to get to know our neighbours and meet members of our community.
Along with its partners, Eastbourne Borough Council is keen to support small scale street parties in Eastbourne, to foster community spirit and cohesion, as well as ensuring that they are fun and easy to organise!
The application deadline date for Golden Jubilee parties is Monday 14 May
