A Great Jubilee

What a great weekend we had! It could have been warmer but all the Jubilee events went well, the food and drink was excellent and a good time was had by all.

From the Beacon lighting on the Thursday to the Village Photograph on the Sunday, everything ran smoothly. It was wonderful to see so many villagers involved. A full photographic record of the events is planned but, for the moment, this picture of Hilda Thomas cutting the Jubilee Cake, will suffice. view

Congratulations and thanks must go to the many people who contributed so much. As usual in Denton lots of residents were happy to contribute in various ways but the key people, the organisers, did an outstanding job.

The Planned record of the four days is now in place in the Features Section of the Website.

Nearly There

It all starts tomorrow, with the first events in the much anticipated celebrations of the Queen's Platinum Jubilee getting under way.

In London there will be the great spectacle of Trooping the Colour; the first time this traditional celebration of Her Majesty's Official Birthday has been held for three years. Here in Denton residents will be putting the finishing touches to their bunting displays etc before gathering in the evening at the Village Hall for the start of four days of local celebrations. The bar will be open, food will be served and at 9.45 our contribution to the network of beacons across the country will be lit.

More events will follow over the next three days. Full details can be seen on a Special Page on the Website.

Let's hope the weather stays fine and a great time is had by all.
