Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Celebrations (Old Dalby)

The following events are now confirmed and being planned:

Sunday, 3rd June

10.00 am – a short service of Thanksgiving in Old Dalby Church led by Revd Dr Eric Lott.

12.30 pm – a street party in Main Road followed by children’s games in the Play Park.  The judging of the Jubilee Hat will take place.

Monday, 4th June

Cricket Field – late afternoon.

A cricket match is being planned between Old Dalby and Nether Broughton.  Family/children’s games will take place at the same time.  The BBQs will be available early evening and Irish and Ceilidh music will be played by Govannen; a  local group.  The bonfire/beacon will be lit after dusk.

All the villagers are invited to these events.  If you have family staying with you, bring them along as well.  Just remember to provide enough food for yourselves and your visitors.

We are looking for offers of help over the two days: strong boys/girls for lifting tables and chairs on the Sunday, putting up bunting etc. and on the Monday at the cricket field.  Please contact any member of the committee or myself and let us know if and when you will be available.

A suggestion has been made for residents of the village to add to the celebrations by planting red, white and blue flowers in their gardens!
