‘Friendship, food and fun with neighbours’
In 2022, Her Majesty The Queen will become the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee. To mark The Queen’s historic 70 year reign, 2022 will see Platinum Jubilee celebrations throughout the UK and the Commonwealth as part of a year-long programme of events.
The Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations are to be even bigger and better than previous national celebrations and for as many people as possible across the nation to participate, at any point from January to December 2022. In support an announcement was made to extend the bank holiday weekend from Thursday 2 to Sunday 5 June 2022 to provide opportunities for communities throughout the UK to come together to celebrate this historic milestone.
There are a variety of ways that people can be involved with communities being invited to submit and partake in the celebrations. Information regarding the variety of approaches can be found on line – from Beacons, Street Parties, Queens Pudding, Events, tree planting and more. As local authorities we would like to support and facilitate partners, Parish and Town Councils, businesses and community groups to mark the occasion.
With many initiatives available for everyone to chose how to get involved, there are so many ways that you and your neighbours can take part – the “Guide to Taking Part” shares more information and how to register your community activities and events.
