Hello Everyone

The Jubilee festive excitement is rapidly building as the Platinum Jubilee long weekend approaches.  Union Jacks and bunting abound on homes, and village lamp-posts, with Platinum Jubilee crests appearing on stationery and signs. It is such a joy to be able to celebrate this landmark moment of HM Queen Elizabeth II's reign.

There are a range of activities planned within the villages.

Toddington: Please see attached copy of the Toddington Village flyer plus an invitation to St George's Church Civic Thanksgiving service on Friday 3rd at 10.30am.  Last Friday morning Jubilee events began with a wonderful coffee morning and art display put on by the Painting for Pleasure group.

Chalgrave/Tebworth have a fun afternoon at the Memorial Hall on Friday 3rd June from 1-6pm and Chalgrave Church folk will be hosting the 'Pop Up Tea Room' refreshments that afternoon.  Offers of help in serving, or in providing cakes will be welcomed.  Please link with me, Sandy, Alison or Sue if you are able to help.

Tingrith have a fun 'The Beacon' evening of musical entertainment on Thursday 2nd June, which the choir and community have put a lot of effort into creating and it is already sold out. There is also a Tingrith Tea Party 2pm on Sunday 5th.

Harlington Village have a community picnic on Bury Orchard on Sunday 5th June afternoon.

Westoning Village have a Picnic in the Park at the Recreation Ground from 12 noon on Sunday 5th, with fun activities. 

There will be services of Thanksgiving at Westoning, Tingrith and Harlington Churches next Sunday morning.

Please let us know of any other Jubilee events you would like us to circulate.  I suspect there will be a lot of street parties taking place next weekend.
