Redbridge gears up for royal wedding party
The bunting is up and the Union Jacks are fluttering in the breeze as royal wedding fever grips Redbridge today, and we want your pictures of the big day.
The Recorder will be at many of the 15 street parties being held across the borough as Prince William and the soon to be Princess Catherine tie the knot.
As the happy couple entertain guests and step out on to the Buckingham Palace balcony for the tens of thousands expected to be crowded along The Mall, Redbridge residents will be playing party games, singing, dancing and making the day one to remember.
Street party locations include: Gordon Road, Wanstead, Crossbow Road, Hainault, Stonehall Avenue, Ilford, Oakhurst Close, Barkingside and Mornington Close, Woodford Green.
In Kensington Drive, Woodford Green, four generations of the same family will come together to celebrate the royal wedding.
