Celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee – Here’s How in Hambledon

Mary Grove, on behalf of Hambledon Parish Council and a team of volunteers from around the village, are working on arrangements for commemorating the 70th anniversary of the Queen’s accession to the throne.
Buckingham Palace announced a four-day Bank Holiday for the beginning of June to mark the event, the first time that a British monarch has reached this platinum milestone. Special celebrations will be taking place across the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth.
Here Mary gives the latest developments for our village festivities.
Hambledon’s celebrations for the Queen’s Jubilee are taking shape!  On Thursday 2nd June we hope to have a torch-lit procession and beacon, courtesy of Peter and Kim Cross and on their land at the top of Bryony Hill – more details later.   On the Saturday there will be open gardens to explore, kindly organised by Caroline Pitt and Andrew Falk. A flower festival will take place in the Church, organised by Mary Parker.  
On Sunday 5th June, in line with national plans, a BIG LUNCH STREET PARTY  is planned for the afternoon on Malthouse Lane, which we have permission to be closed for the day.  George Pitt is planning two Treasure Hunts, walking and cycling, and Jane Woolley is producing a brochure depicting previous Hambledon Royal celebrations and a programme outlining the 2022 activities, which we hope to sell for charity.
Tables will be available to book and decorate, and participants are invited to bring their own lunch and drinks. Hopefully there will be music and singing to add to the day. The Village Hall facilities will be available.
All are very welcome to join the party, and details of table bookings will be available after our next planning meeting on 5th May, at 8pm at The Merry Harriers).
