Park plans Royal Wedding day

WITH the Royal Wedding fast approaching, a Cresswell-based caravan site is holding its own celebration to mark the event.

Golden Sands Holiday Park at Cresswell will have a street party on Friday, April 29, when Prince William marries Kate Middleton in Westminster Abbey.

Park residents will enjoy a day of flags, face painting for children and Royal-themed food such as coronation chicken.

There will also be an appearance from four corgis, the breed favoured by the Queen.

Mum-of-three Sandra Thompson, who owns and runs Golden Sands Holiday Park with her husband Nigel, said: “As well as being a special year for Will and Kate, 2011 is a big year for us as it’s Golden Sands’ 20th anniversary.

“We love the chance to throw a party and the Royal wedding has really captured the imagination of everyone at the holiday park.

“We’ve got bunting and flags arranged and a big screen to watch the ceremony.

“Everyone is getting dressed up in their wedding outfits and will be bringing something for the street party wedding banquet.”

The street party will raise funds for charity. Competitions are planned for the best dressed guest, guessing the weight of the wedding cake and even the best William and Kate lookalikes.
