HM The Queen Platinum Jubilee June 2022

In 2022, HM The Queen will become the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee having come to the throne on the 6th February 1952.  A remarkable seventy years of service.
The May Bank Holiday Weekend will be moved to Thursday 2nd June and an additional Bank Holiday on Friday 3rd June will see a four-day weekend to celebrate Her Majesty The Queen's Platinum Jubilee.  This will provide an opportunity for communities and people to come together to celebrate this historic milestone.  The four days of celebrations will include public events and community activities as well as national moments of reflection on The Queen's 70 years of service.
The Parish Council would like to work with residents to find a suitable way for the village to Celebrate the Jubilee through various events; it is your ideas and thoughts that are required!  If any residents would like to form a Committee to drive this forward supported by the Parish Council please email jubilee22@standlakepc.org.uk  Parish Councillor Jamie Rippin has volunteered to Chair such a Committee.  In addition, if any businesses in the village would like to become involved by contributing to a Commemorative gift for the children of the village such as a coin or mug please contact Jamie at jubilee22@standlakepc.org.uk.  The Parish Council has also set aside a budget for this.
