It's your chance to make a real difference.
THE Queen's Golden Jubilee celebrations have already started in South Wales - with a fish and chips party for pensioners.
The members of the Rhoose Darby and Joan Club sat down for their traditional meal yesterday afternoon.
And children from Pentyrch, Radyr and Creigiau have been celebrating early, too.
Brownie packs from all three areas held their jubilee party in Pentyrch Village Hall last night.
The three-hour long Rhoose Darby and Joan jubilee bash took place in the community hall in Stuart Road, Rhoose. Their fish and chips sit-down meal was partly financed with a pounds 50 grant from the Echo Jubilee Party Fund.
The Brownies of Pentyrch, Radyr and Creigiau made a real party of it, dressing up in jubilee costumes they had made over the last few weeks.
Brownie leader Karen Ling said: ``The children had great fun creating some really colourful costumes.
``It was a wonderful way for us to mark the jubilee with children from Brownie packs in Pentyrch, Radyr and Creigiau getting together to celebrate.'' The parties herald the start of jubilee fever which will be building up over the next few days towards the Jubilee Bank Holiday weekend.
Hundreds of street parties have been planned across the region over the four-day break - and the Echo will be at many of them making a comprehensive picture collection of the celebrations.
l Watch out for your full-colour Golden Jubilee street party supplement FREE in the Echo a week tomorrow - packed with pictures from your special celebrations.
