Our five Key Themes are –
1. Music: we have two experienced volunteers who will be putting together a village
band and choir. The band will play at an ambitious music festival over the weekend, with
8 hours of live music planned over the Saturday & Sunday, from seven local bands. The
community choir will learn and perform the Queen’s song “A life lived with Grace” at both
the Beacon lighting, planned to coordinate with the national event and later at the
weekend celebrations.
2. Audio: we plan to put together an audio library of local resident’s memories of the
coronation and develop a series of workshops to offer the local community, particularly
targeting the youth, the opportunity to develop skills around music and audio systems.
3. Fabric art: we have an experienced volunteer who has already started bunting
workshops aiming to decorate the village with authentic, hand made material bunting,
using old donated fabric, largely bed sheets. 700 bunting triangles have already been
made and we intend to run more workshops to meet the enthusiasm. This activity
demonstrates sustainability by reducing the amount of plastic used at this years
celebration and provides a reusable resource for future years. This group will also be
available to support the outfits for the planned children’s parade & scarecrow
4. Poetry: a local poet has committed to provide 4 workshops and a performance over
the weekend. We aim to run a poetry competition and display the works in the Hall over
the weekend.
5. Legacy: we wish to leave a legacy to remember our Queen’s magnificent

The Jubilee Fun Weekend encourages other local village organisations to be be
involved & allows them to raise much needed funds, including the local W.I., the
Community shop, our recently acquired Community pub, 3 churches and Stall holders
who are all local craftspeople.
