The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Celebrations
Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee will be marked by a four day bank holiday weekend lasting from Thursday 2nd June to Sunday 5th June. The Parish Council is planning a series of events to celebrate the Jubilee throughout the four day period.
On Thursday 2nd June, we will be having a Jubilee Beacon on Shorne Common during the evening. The beacon will be lit at 9.45pm, but residents are invited to gather on the Common from 8pm.
On Saturday 4th June, we are holding a Street Party in The Street between 12 noon and 2pm. We will be serving food for children and parishioners, and there will also be activities for all ages in the Village Hall.
Please note that in order to facilitate this, The Street will be closed to through traffic between number 10 The Street and Butchers Hill, from 11am to 3pm, and the car park at the village hall will be closed from 6pm on Friday 3rd June until 3pm on Saturday 4th June. Parking will be available at the Doctors Surgery on Saturday 4th June.
On Sunday 5th June, we will be hosting the Big Lunch, which will be a family picnic on Shorne Common in Mill Hill Lane. This will run from 11am to 4pm, and residents and their friends and families are invited to bring their own food and drinks to the Common and celebrate in their own way. For those who prefer it, a Fish and chip van will be on site.
We look forward to meeting you all and celebrating The Queen’s 70 years on the throne!
