"In the February Greywell Gazette, Paul Brennan-Benson described some of the events being planned over the Platinum Jubilee Holiday Weekend. Paul has asked me to co-ordinate the events so you can expect to hear more from me over the next few weeks." - Richard Cole.
The most important news is that Hart DC have approved the road closure from 10.00am to 18.00pm on Sunday which will enable us to have a Village Street party.
We are now in a position to explain in a bit more detail what is being planned for the village and we would encourage as much participation as possible to create a wonderful celebration.
One thing we would like is to see the Village decorated as much as possible – so get the bunting made or purchased and get decorating
Flower Festival - St Mary’s Church - Thursday 2nd – Saturday 4th June
Tennis Tournament - Saturday afternoon
BBQ - Fox & Goose - Saturday afternoon – evening
The Queen’s Ball - Village Hall - Saturday 8.00pm - including a Jubilee Cocktail and Dancing with Themed Dress
Pet Show - tbc - Sunday morning
Street Party - The Street - Sunday lunchtime - this will take the form of a bring your own picnic
Bake-off Competition - Village Hall - Sunday afternoon
Afternoon Tea with cake - Village Hall & Street - Sunday afternoon
Tree Planting - Church meadow - October (but with the site marked over the weekend)
There are other items for potential inclusion which will be announced once confirmed.
We are sure that there will be lots of questions and we’re still open to ideas. Please email Greywell_Jubilee@yahoo.com if you have any feedback or questions.
