Queen’s Diamond Jubilee

Queen's Diamond Jubilee

Thanks to the hard work of the steering committee members and friends and family and a generous grant from our district councillors, we have £1000.00 with which to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Anniversary, (a very rare event, the only other time in the history of the British Monarchy was in 1897 for Queen Victoria).
