Council offers Royal wedding street party advice
By Linda Serck
BBC Berkshire reporter

Kate Middleton and HRH Prince William
The royal wedding date has been made a public holiday

A Berkshire council has produced a leaflet with details on how to organise a street party for the royal wedding.

Residents in the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead can follow advice on how to apply for a temporary road closure and confirm an event date.

The council has previously announced it will pay any street party legal fees and statutory advertising costs.

The marriage of HRH Prince William to Miss Catherine Middleton is on Friday 29 April.

Cllr Colin Rayner, Cabinet Member for Highways and Streetcare, said: "I am so pleased that a local Berkshire girl is marrying the Prince William and we should all have the opportunity to celebrate this young couple's wedding."

He added: "Under normal circumstances the council doesn't encourage events on the public highway, but the royal wedding is a joyous national occasion.

"We are determined to do everything possible to make it a fantastic time for everyone who wants to join in".

Copies of the leaflet are available from council offices and local libraries.
