Jubilee plans in motion
Cawston and Dunchurch plans to celebrate Her Majesty's Platinum Jubilee begin to take shape.
CAWSTON residents are invited to join a Big Jubilee Lunch in celebration of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee on Sunday 5th June 2022.
There will be a picnic in Cawston main park from 12 noon to 3pm, to which everyone is welcome. There will be more information in the weeks to come.
The Big Lunch is a nationwide initiative designed to help communities ‘celebrate their connections and get to know each other a bit better’. It is run by Eden Project Communities.
The first Big Jubilee Lunch was held in 2012 to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. Were you there? Have you got any stories, memories or pictures to share? Get in touch with us at email@example.com.
Dunchurch plans are also in motion, with the Friends of Dunchurch (FODS) leading the way in collaboration with other groups.
Parish councillor Ian Grogan said at February’s parish council meeting that the FODS group was looking at a three-day programme of activities, to include a beacon-lighting event, a full church service followed by a tea party, and big open-air picnic on the sports field with Morris dancers and other basic entertainment.
Cllr Grogan said FODS had asked the parish council to sponsor the beacon for £3,800.
