The large tree on the corner of Cory Close will be decorated with Jubilee handicrafts. Please let us have any items you would like hung on the tree before the day.

Jubilee themed scarecrows will look lovely in front gardens and add to the celebrations. If you feel that a scarecrow is too large project for you to undertake, what about a jubilee themed planter or maybe just some bunting or flags?. If you need help with this please let us know and we will send a volunteer along to help you.

We really would like to hear from you if you would like to volunteer to help, either before or on the day. Please contact either Charmaine or Sarah.

If you have any large potted plants could you please contact us as we would like to add them to the tea dance theme in the hall.

Any decorations you have that might help in the hall or the car park or maybe they could be dotted around the village, please contact us.

If you can think of anything else that you feel would add to the day, once again, contact us, we would love to hear from you.
