The week before the Jubilee events in June, I was working at our Westminster office. It was interesting to see all the road prep that went into crowd control for this massive event.
My big contribution as a viewer came on the Sunday, when the flotilla took place. Best part? I could see it from my balcony! A group of us got together for a very unhealthy indoor picnic, complete with Pimm’s!
Unfortunately, it rained. But we saw it from close to the start line, and so were almost done seeing the entire thing when the rain began. We went indoors and watched the finish line on TV, and all the silly people out in the rain.
I was really excited to see the boats.
