Parish Council co-ordinates Jubilee celebrations

The Parish Council is co-ordinating two community celebrations to mark the Queen's Platinum Jubilee.

On Thursday June 2, a beacon will be lit on Far Lash green space to mark the start of an extra-long celebratory bank holiday weekend.

Specially-composed music will be played and sung before and after the lighting, which is due to take place at 9.45pm.

The weekend will end with a street party, featuring children's attractions and live music, on Church Street on Sunday June 5 between midday and 4pm, with a road closure in place from 10am until 6pm.

Attendees are invited to take their own picnics and, if wished, don fancy dress to reflect any of the many decades during which the Queen has been on the throne.

Tables, which seat 6 and cost £30 have been allocated by random draw.

To help promote the Jubilee events across the parish, Brookside resident Russell Kew has been appointed village crier to be the voice of the community during the bank holiday weekend.

The Council has produced a Jubilee souvenir booklet which will be on sale for £1 per copy at the beacon lighting and the street party.
