Next year will be the 70th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II ascending the throne, her Platinum Jubilee. To mark this occasion there will be an extra bank holiday on June 3rd 2022, making a four day bank holiday weekend.
Several residents have suggested that it would be lovely to hold a Community Celebration on this bank holiday weekend, both to recognise the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee and to celebrate life being more fun again. Suggestions have included a village street party/picnic or a large village fete/festival where local organisations can put on activities and set up stalls.
The Parish Council may be able to apply for a small grant towards this, but this is an event that needs the participation of the community as a whole, not just on the day but in the planning and organising.
If you are interested in helping to plan and organise such an event please contact Louise Taylor or Sue Stacey.
To do so, please use the contact us form on our website. Just mention that you’re able to help in the Platinum Jubilee event and we will make sure the message reaches Louise and Sue.Contact Us
If there’s sufficient interest then we anticipate having a meeting this summer to kick off the planning process.
