Plans for the Alpington and Yelverton Village Festival in celebration of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee from 2nd to 5th June are well underway.  Events will kick off on the Thursday evening with a Jubilee themed Quiz at the Wheel Fortune pub in Alpington.

On Friday evening, 3rd June, there will be a Wine tasting with cheese and nibbles at the Village Hall where a variety of wines will be available for tasting.  Tickets at £10 a head will be on sale from the beginning of May.

On the afternoon of Saturday 4th June we will be holding a 1950s style Village Fete on the Village Hall recreation field/green.  There will be a refreshments tent, ice cream and fish and chips vans, a Victoria Sponge baking competition, traditional games and craft stalls and a Punch and Judy show.

On the morning of the final day of our celebrations, Sunday 5th June, there will be activities for children on the Garrick Field, including tug of war, traditional races such as the three-legged race, with other activities being planned.  This will be followed by a “Bring your own “ Big Picnic Lunch at the Village Hall and green.  There will be a performance by local ukulele group Jelly and the Biscuits and a large celebration cake will be cut and shared. 

Why not join family, friends and neighbours at the Picnic and dress up 1950s style to make it a special occasion to celebrate the Jubilee?

It would be great if villagers deck out their homes in bunting for the Jubilee.

Other activities to complement the celebrations are being planned and a full program of events will be delivered to every household in Alpington and Yelverton in May. 

Further information will also be posted on the website over the coming weeks.
