The Queens Platinum Jubilee Party 2022
The free to attend community event took place on June 4th — as part of the official Jubilee weekend and hosted a variety of family friendly entertainment and activities to commemorate the celebrations.
The doors opened at 1pm and saw around 200 attendees who take their spot on the Parish Hall carpark (in a street party fashion). Guests enjoyed live music, a free BBQ with Bar and the first 100 people tucked into a free royal cream tea, while a marquee hosted free children’s craft activities, face painting and royal themed memorabilia.
Younger guests were invited to get dressed up and join in with a variety of competitions Cake Competition, Crown and Tiara competition and a scarecrow competition, which were judged by Lindridge Parish Hall
Richard Rainbird-Hitchins, Parish Councilor/ Events coordinator, and Julia Cooper, Parish Hall Chair, said that the event was planned to bring everyone together in the Parish. “We all know the challenges everyone has faced over the past couple of years, and Lindridge Parish Hall, which is ran by a dedicated group of volunteers, has become the heart of the parish over recent times. “We wanted to arrange an event to bring everyone back together again — and what better way to celebrate the Jubilee, than with a party! There was something for everyone to enjoy, and guests even had their picture taken alongside the cardboard cut out Queen. “The Parish Hall committee is hugely thankful to Temespan, The Parish Council and the PCC that funded the celebration, which made the event possible. We can’t wait to see everyone again at the Summer BBQ later in the year.”
