Ann Jones, 69, has lived in the road since it was built in 1946, and remembered being given a commemorative book of the Coronation while at school. She said: "The Queen is fantastic. She does such a good job. I have been glued to the telly over the weekend watching the jubilee coverage."
Organisers Becky Webber, 30, and brother David Morris, 26, held the street party to raise money for the British Heart Foundation. The appeal was in memory of their grandad Brian Goodman, who died in January.
Becky, who works as a nursery nurse, said: "Last year we held a party for the royal wedding, but have done more this year. People are excited. We are hoping to put on an event every year."
