Diamond jubilee events in West Butterwick

PREPARATIONS are underway for events to mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in West Butterwick.

On Sunday, June 3, there will be a prize treasure hunt with entry costing £1 per team and on Bank Holiday Monday, June 4, there will be a picnic in the park.

The park event will be held on the village playing field with families encouraged to bring their own picnics.

Other attractions in the pipeline include a brass band, balloon race, cake stall, raffle, jubilee cake competition and activities for children, including a fancy dress contest.

It is also hoped there will be a mounted display of memorabilia commemorating previous royal events and a prize royal quiz is planned for early May, £1 entry per team.

Organisers are also encouraging residents to decorate their homes with a royal jubilee theme - prizes again awarded to best efforts.
