The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee 2022
On 6th February 2022 Her Majesty The Queen became the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee, marking 70 years of service to the people of the United Kingdom, the Realms and the Commonwealth.
To celebrate this unprecedented anniversary, events and initiatives took place throughout the year, culminating in a four day UK bank holiday weekend from Thursday 2nd to Sunday 5th June. The bank holiday provided an opportunity for communities and people throughout the United Kingdom to come together to celebrate the historic milestone.
And come together we did!
We wanted to say a big thank you to everyone who attended our events over the weekend. It was a great pleasure to see so many people from our community come out to celebrate and be together for such a special occasion.
Be it attending the Beacon Lighting and fireworks on the Thursday evening, the Jubilee Fayre organised by Leighton-Linslade Rotary Club on Friday, the Saturday Charter Market, the Big Lunch Food Festival on Sunday or even enjoying a street party with your family, friends and neighbours. We hope you had a fun filled weekend.
There is still time to follow Barnaby Beacon though the town on the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Beacon Trail, live until 12th June. Full details below..
