Village jubilee plans revealed

Have your say

WEST Stockwith Parish Council has announced plans to mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations later this year.

On Saturday, June 9, there will be a marching band and a procession of the ‘West Stockwith Queen’, her attendants and others in fancy dress.

Children have put their names forward for the honour and a draw will be made at a social event on Friday, March 23, in the Gertrude Morris Hall at 6.30pm.

After the procession there will be a street party and traditional games on the Malt Kiln followed by a barn dance in the Gertrude Morris Hall in the evening.

Main Street may be closed on the day between Ings Lane and North Carr Road but residents will be consulted - any concerns should be sent to the parish clerk by tomorrow (Friday).

Plans have been boosted by £200 grants from both County Councillor Liz Yates and District Councillor Hazel Brand.
