DIAMOND JUBILEE - The itinerary for the jubilee celebrations starts on Saturday, June 2, with a Dazzling Diamond Disco at Lynch Court, dancing the night away to tunes from the 60s. On Sunday, June 3, there is a jubilee service at St Mary’s Church, coffee and cake and a jubilee flower exhibition, then a family fun afternoon/evening at the White Swan with traditional games, hog roast and live music. On June 4, the day comprises an Olympic-style village parade, giant village picnic and games, princes’ and princesses’ fancy dress, the coronation of village king and queen (under-16s only), a screening of the jubilee concert and the Museum on the Move.
Eardisland IN BLOOM - A plant swap and sale on Saturday was well attended. Dozens of plants were donated for village planting and more than £80 raised in sales. £42 raised from the sale of refreshments has been donated to local charity ECHO.
