I'm charging my neighbours £7 EACH to go to our Platinum Jubilee street party – they're fuming but I don't careJune 4, 2022
A MUM-of-two is charging her neighbours £7 EACH to attend their street's Platinum Jubilee party.
Angela Henderson sent tempers flaring on her street in Carlisle, Cumbria, when she released a flier for today's bash.
In it, Angela lists a host of activities taking place between 2pm and 6pm today – including face paints and games.
It goes on to say adults will be charged £7 for the event while kids will cost a fiver – and ALL cars will be banned from parking on the street.
Raging neighbours hit out at Angela, claiming her rules mean they're being charged £7 to be on their own street.
But foster carer Angela – who is organising the event alongside six others – hit back.

She told The Sun: "Some of the comments [from neighbours] were absolutely disgusting. Some of them were behind us obviously.
"I was absolutely disgusted considering there are only 40 people on our street.
"All this neighbour had to do is come and knock on my door.
"What really bothers me is that they could have knocked on my door but chose to complain behind my back."

Angela said every neighbour was consulted on planning the party – with 40 saying they would chip in.
But when it came to it, only ten people agreed to pay up.
Angela added: "We're having to pay for it all out of our own pocket, we've got no funding from it whatsoever."
She believes the cost is justified because five BBQs would be needed to cater for everyone – as well as cakes and snacks.
Some of the comments [from neighbours] were absolutely disgusting.
Posting a photo of the invitation on Reddit last week, one shocked resident wrote: "According to two of my neighbours it’ll cost £7 to be on my street on Saturday and nobody is allowed to use the road."
Users were quick to respond, with one person commenting: “What do you actually get for your £7?
“I mean. I thought everyone would be given a job (sausage rolls, cheese and pineapple etc) and it all comes together. Or are you just paying for Ange and Dre’s [the organisers] big Iceland shop and their energy bill?"
Someone else said: “If you want to do a community event like this, just get local folks to use their barbecues and such, would be much more… you know… communityish [sic].”
