How do I do a doorstep party?
- Pop the poster from your pack in the window, this tells your neighbours who’s having a birthday and on what day. You may like to follow this up with a message to that new street WhatsApp group or mention it to a handful of people over the garden fence.
Just like clapping for our carers, people should stand on their doorstep or driveway and sing as loud as they can!
In line with government guidelines you should not gather in groups with your neighbours.
How do I set up a Zoom call for my birthday?
You can set up a group video call via Zoom or other video call apps. They are usually free.
Set up a call, this will give you an invite link and password – send this to your friends, there’s a handy WhatsApp picture above!

Are we encouraging people to gather?
Absolutely not! The whole point of a lockdown birthday is to have a great time at a responsible distance! Please stay safe and stay home.
Should I think about keeping my child safe online?
