The Queen will be celebrating her Platinum Jubilee in 2022. The government has announced that there will be an extended bank holiday from Thursday 2nd to Sunday 5th June to mark this event.

A start has been made to organise events in Ullesthorpe to celebrate the Jubilee.

Currently the plans include, lighting beacons, a themed open gardens, band and beer festival, sports competitions, village lunch and buffet and dance.

Do you have ideas about what should be happening or would you like to help in the organising of the events? If so please go along the Village Hall at 2pm on Sunday 31st October for the next meeting of the organising group.
