Fun run and street fair among Holt’s Queen’s Diamond Jubilee ideas
A fun run and a street fair are among the suggestions for Holt to mark the Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebrations in 2012.
On Monday, the town council agreed that something should be done to ensure the town took part in the event, which commemorates 60 years since the Queen acceded to the throne.
Vice chairman John Allison suggested a fun run around Spout Hills.
He said: 'People move into the area and don't know we've got 20 acres of common land on the outskirts of the town. As chairman of Spout Hills Committee, I thought a fun run would be good.'
He said Holt Youth Project was prepared to organise refreshments, with profits going to the project, and added that it would be a 'free event' that would be open to people of all ages.

Maggie Prior said the town 'should do something', and added: 'Personally I like the idea of a street fair. It would be terribly remiss to do nothing at all in Holt.'
Town Clerk Di Dann, who passed round forms for the councillors to fill in with their ideas, said a member of the public had also asked for a street fair.

Jono Read, backed by Andy Turner, said there were often events for older and younger residents, and said he would like to see something for 'young adults'.
The council agreed to stage an event, and to debate it again at a future meeting.
