Jubilee Picnic a Great Success!

Judith Daykin, Chair of the Bury and West Burton Volunteers Committee, reports that;

“The Jubilee Picnic on Sunday June 5th was extremely successful with more than 200, maybe even 300 people, who came along to a beautifully ‘Jubilee’ decorated Bury Green to join us. There was wonderful live music from Solid Steel steel band and Rob Berry and the Deadbeat who kept us entertained and even dancing! In between the live music was a mix of all the hits from the 70 years of the Queen’s reign introducing a little nostalgia and taking us back in time to those old days!

Everyone brought their own picnics, and sat at tables or on hay bales to enjoy their food, but still managed to visit the bar for Pimms or ‘fizz’ to celebrate the occasion. Those who wanted tea or coffee along with the specially made Jubilee cupcakes, could also enjoy watching a little of the London Pageant being screened all afternoon. The ‘Pin the tail on the Queen’s Corgi’, ‘Find the lost Crown Jewels’ games, raffle and homemade crown competition added some extra fun and a chance to win prizes. The team of organisers worked very hard to plan everything, and I’m sure they’ll all agree, it was worth it to see the happy faces enjoying the day! THANK YOU TO THEM!

Thank you also to everyone who came, many of whom came early to set up and stayed afterwards to clear away so no traces were left behind.

Finally, our special grateful thanks go to those who were kind enough to sponsor the event, but without whose support we could not have gone ahead.


And thank you Judith for all your hard work organising this wonderful, memorable event!
