Queens Jubilee Celebrations

Wendleburys Queens Diamond Jubilee Celebrations

We are now well advanced in the preparations for our village celebrations to be held on Monday 4th June. Very shortly every household in the village will receive its invitation to join in with the Royal Garden Party in the village hall grounds and to all the other exciting events being held in the village that day.

Starting at 3pm we have a full programme of events. We will be focussing on the children and the garden party in the afternoon and a pig roast, bars and music in the evening, finishing off with a procession to the beacon and fireworks at the end of the day.

We have now had our beacon officially recognised and we will be part of the national programme for the lighting of the 2012 beacons across the country.

We are currently undertaking a survey on the number of children in the village so that we can provide them with a memento of the occasion. So do not be surprised if you are asked a question on the ages of children in your family. We do not want to miss anyone.

Our first fundraising event has now taken place. Saturday 3rd March saw the Big Breakfast being held at the Village Hall, with the excellent food being provided by the members of the WI. It was extremely well supported and I am sure it has made a great contribution to the village jubilee fund. Thank you to everyone who braved the wet weather and made their way to the hall to join in. We will let you know how much was raised in a future web mailing.

Our next fundraising event is the Red, White and Blue Party to be held on Saturday 28th April. The event will have a disco, bar, silent raffle and a Best of British finger food buffet. There is a prize for the most creative way you can wear a Union Jack. Start thinking outside of the box! Remember age is no barrier ( unless you are under 18 ) and we hope everyone will consider coming along to help raise the money required for providing the villagers with a brilliant Jubilee celebration. Tickets are available from Lindsay Daulton 248651 or Paula Cordy 244589.

Already underway is the Village’s Diamond Jubilee Draw. We are selling tickets for these at all the village events and this fundraiser is being run by the Wendlebury Village Club. Tickets are £5 and there is a first prize of £250! We hope you will find it difficult to escape the lure of these little orange tickets....................
