Halesworth prepare for Diamond Jubilee celebrations

HALESWORTH Town Council, with the support of other organisations in the area, will be arranging a series of events to celebrate our Queen's Diamond Jubilee from Friday to Monday, June 1 to 4.

On the Friday evening St Mary's Church will be hosting a free nostalgic sing-along concert for all to enjoy.

'Come along for a relaxing and fun start to the weekend and look out for separate notices of this event,' said town councillor Douglas Mizon.

Sunday afternoon will see a Jubilee buffet lunch in the Market Place organised by Halesworth Town Council for all who live in Halesworth who are not having their own street parties.

There will be music and entertainment and something special for the children.

'The event itself will be free for all to attend but the council is asking for a small donation of 50p per person for those that wish to eat from the buffet lunch.

'Wristbands for this will be available to purchase from Ipswich Building Society and The Halesworth Toy Shop from the end of April,' said Mr Mizon.

Later on the Sunday afternoon uniformed youth organisations from the town will parade before marching into St Mary's Church for the Civic Jubilee Service.

Halesworth in Transition are busy making loads of bunting to decorate the town centre to help make this a day to remember.

'If you have any spare material to donate or time to offer them they would be extremely grateful for your help. See their separate invitations to join them 'bunting-making' in the library after Easter,' said Mr Mizon.

For the Monday evening the Scouts will be building a huge bonfire on the Millennium Green with music and food from about 7pm until about 10pm when the town's celebrations will end with a bang!

A full printed programme will be available soon in various shops in Halesworth town centre.
