THANK YOU TO EVERYONE!
What a fantastic weekend of walks, talks, dances, dogs, picnics, singing and general merriment. It's been wonderful to see SO MANY of our parish community enjoying the events. We cannot thank you all enough for coming along to support our Platinum Jubilee Celebrations.
We are grateful to the organising committee and over 60 volunteers who lent their support as our community and came together to celebrate and say thank you to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II for her 70 years of service to the nation and Commonwealth.
We are in the process of collating as many photographs from the weekend as possible, if anyone took any photographs at any of our events (and would be willing to share them and the copyright) please do send them through to us. Please find the details on our Gallery Page.
