THE QUEEN'S PLATINUM JUBILEE - CELEBRATION IDEAS WELCOME
Next year on 2nd to 5th June the Country is celebrating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. The Government’s programme is that on
- Thursday 2nd there will be beacons lit across the country and it would be nice if Melbury could join in
- Friday 3rd is a church service in London and there may be some celebration in our parish
- Saturday 4th is a party at Buckingham Palace and the Village Hall is looking at what entertainment might be appropriate to hold that evening
- Sunday 5th is slated to be the Big Jubilee Lunch
Both the Village Hall and the Parish Council would welcome some help in pulling together Melbury’s celebration of the Queen’s 70 year on the throne. If you are interested in helping please either get in contact with Jodie Carter the clerk to the parish council, any parish councillor or member of the village hall committee.
Let’s make this a celebration to remember, it will not happen again.
From time to time we have vacancies for councillors as we do currently (December 2021). If you live in the village and feel you have something to contribute please contact the councillors click here or the clerk Jodie Carter at
firstname.lastname@example.org OR email@example.com
No particular qualifications are needed - it's all about meeting to discuss and act on issues of importance to the village community. We suggest that if you are interested that you click on this link that will take you to previous Meetings/Agendas where you can see the sort of issues discussed.
ANYONE FOR CRICKET?
Evershot has asked if Melbury would be interested in restarting the annual cricket match.
John Senior has agreed to canvas support for the idea from any players - male, female, young, old with bags of enthusiasm rather than skill. Although any skilled players could be our secret weapon!
Depending on numbers there could be two teams or a single wicket competition.
John believes there is a trophy somewhere so please get in touch with him if you would like to be in our team and bring it home to Melbury Osmond!
