Following last month’s article in the LINK magazine, there has been a superb response from a wide variety of community groups to “get involved” with the planned celebration day in and around The Marine Gardens on Monday 4th June 2012 from noon to 10.30pm’ish. This is an ideal opportunity for our community to come together to celebrate HM the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and have a memorable day of free Fun and Celebration. We’ve even arranged for wall-to-wall sunshine! After all, this will be Fleetwood at it’s best. With the sunshine comes an opportunity for a lovely picnic; so everyone is encouraged to bring along their packed lunches and picnic baskets. Make a day of it! Fleetwood Town Council and members of the organising group have been encouraged by the interest shown by a wide range of community and voluntary organisations keen to be a part of what promises to be a very special date in the Fleetwood 2012 calendar. The Jubilee will also be special for every Fleetwood infant and primary school pupil who will receive a commemorative Jubilee Mug at school, kindly funded by the Town Council to mark this wonderful occasion.

There will be free rides for children and the ever-popular Bouncy Castle to work off all that energy! The schools in Fleetwood are all pulling together to organise a parade of ‘Jubilee Queens & Retinues’, and after a busy afternoon of activities to suit everyone, the evening will culminate in a Firework Display and the lighting of The Jubilee Beacon on The Mount. Our Fleetwood beacon will be one of hundreds to be lit at a prearranged time along the length and breadth of the UK to honour our Queen and bring to a close a Bank Holiday weekend of celebrations. We are still keen to hear from you if you want to be a part of our special day? With this in mind please contact Gordon Oates (876066) or Pat Bee (779137), who are members of the Steering Group happy to help and advise as the plans take shape.

There will be stalls, events and attractions for all ages, with demonstrations and performances from local bands, as well as a Fancy Dress and Fleetwood’s Got Talent segment on the new outside performance area.

It’s never too late to get involved, and remember… ”Be there. The Diamond Jubilee Rocks!” 29
