EAST AND WEST Parish Councils have been hard at work planning celebrations for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. In May we will start to adorn both the Horsley villages with a wonderful display of Union Flags above shops, offices and private residences in our very first ‘FESTIVAL OF FLAGS'.
If you would like to participate, you can order a flag and flagpole from the Parish Clerk or purchase one at the next Farmers Market on Saturday 19 March. On Thursday 2 June we will light a Jubilee Beacon on Sheepleas, one of 1,500 beacons to be lit around Britain and the Commonwealth. Then on Sunday 5June please join us for a fabulous Platinum Jubilee Picnic and Pageant at Horsley Towers when the highlight of the afternoon will be a performance by, appropriately, a Queen tribute band. Entrance is free and there will entertainment for children plus lots to eat and drink.
