The Queen’s 70th Jubilee

Would you like to be involved in the organising of some celebrations to take place In Hunts Grove?

In 2022, Her Majesty The Queen will become the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee, seventy years of service, having acceded to the throne on 6th February 1952 when Her Majesty was 25 years old.

An extended bank holiday, from Thursday 2nd to Sunday 5th June, will provide an opportunity for communities and people throughout the United Kingdom to come together to celebrate the historic milestone. The four days of celebrations will include public events and community activities, as well as national moments of reflection on The Queen’s 70 years of service.

Sunday 5th June – The Big Jubilee Lunch: Every year since the idea began in 2009 The Big Lunch has encouraged communities to celebrate their connections and get to know each other a little bit better, coming together in a spirit of fun and friendship. In 2022 The Big Lunch will bring the Jubilee celebrations into the heart of every community. 

Typical Jubilee Celebration table.

People are invited to share friendship, food and fun with neighbours as part of the Platinum Jubilee celebrations. A Big Jubilee Lunch can be big or small – street party or picnic, tea and cake or a garden barbeque.

Some ideas put forward so far, have been:

  • an open air Cinema evening
  • A dog show
  • A jubilee Communal lunch

If you are interested in getting involved please contact: Cllr Sandra Meecham on 07506 897281 sandra.meecham@huntsgrove-pc.gov.uk.
