Organised by Rosegrove Neighbourhood Watch, all the residents of Rosegrove, Lowerhouse and Gannow are invited to take part in the parade on Saturday, June 4th.

The parade starts from Rosegrove Railway Station car park at 7pm and organisers would love to see residents and young people dressed up and waving flags and ready to do a lap round the area to mark the special occasion.

As part of the celebrations a children's dance outreach project is set to launch next month. Aimed at children aged six and over a professional dance co ordinator will lead sessions at Rosegrove Railway Club.
