The Queens Platinum Jubilee 2022
Almost 20 years ago the village of Vernham Dean and environs celebrated Her Majesty’s 50 years on the throne.
The late Sheila Thomas and I organised a short parade through the village and Back to the Playing Fields. Many villagers and nearly all the village organisations participated in what was a wonderful series of events.
The parade was followed by a picnic for the children, Afternoon Tea for the seniors and a BBQ and bar for everyone.
We are hoping to do the same in 2022 for the Platinum Jubilee.
The Trooping of the Colour on Thursday 2nd June 2022 and The Service of Thanksgiving from St Pauls Cathedral the following day will be screened in the Millenium Hall (Village Hall Committee – Michael Knight).
Open Garden Event dates to be confirmed (Karen Nightingale).
Scarecrow Competition and the Street Party on Sunday 5th June 2022 (Richard and Sue Winch).
Saturday 4th June 2022 Parade followed by picnic and entertainment for the children, afternoon tea and Gin Bar with a BBQ and live music starting in the early evening, all to be held on the Playing Fields. (Tangy Sears)
A committee has been formed to coordinate the Saturday events and to raise funds to cover the costs.
The first such fundraising event will be a village breakfast on Sunday 12th September, in the Millenium Hall. Please see the Posters for further information.
It was a splendid occasion, and it is hoped that we can enjoy the same again in 2022!
Look out for the posters detailing all events for the Jubilee 2022 celebrations.
