Last year around 40 residents in Batt Close – part of the Rochberie Heights development – marched together for 80 metres along their street. Each household created costumes and decorations to make their road shimmer and sparkle in Pride colours.

Batt Close resident, Rachel Bunce, said: “Batt Close Pride is for everyone – whether part of the LGBTQ+ community or an ally – and it shows that our community is a safe space for us all to be ourselves.”

Following the parade itself, the neighbours will take part in activities including a dog show and refreshments
