2nd to 5th June, anytime between 11 am and 3 pm – Exhibition about Mytholm during the last 70 years, charting the changes in the life of the local community since 1952 and changes during that time in areas such as fashions, toys, games, food, drinks, sweets, weddings, memories. Hebden Royd School will also be marking their postponed 150th anniversary with an exhibition of the history of the school.
5th June between 12 pm and 2 pm – A pot-luck picnic where local people bring their own picnic to eat on their own blanket or chairs. For those who may not be able to provide their own picnic, there will be some “Food Share” items available. In the event of wet weather, St John’s room at the church will be used. There will be a professionally-made cake in the shape of a 2D Coronation Crown on display until about 1 pm. People will be asked to collect a free ticket (maximum of 100) on arrival at the church and to decide if they would like sponge cake, fruit cake or vegan cake in exchange for their ticket after 1 pm. The colour theme for the Platinum Jubilee is purple, which the church will be using for decorations and flowers, together with the union flag. We encourage you to wear something purple or dress in 1952 fashions.
Craft Workshop for children at St James’ – date and time to be confirmed – Although there will be a few simple activities available on the day, accompanied children are invited to drop-in to this workshop and make their own A5 hardback memorial book to complete during the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Weekend. If participants wish, the completed booklets could be displayed in the exhibition after 5th June until 12th June.
