The jubilee beacon will be lit on June 4 at the common, and it is hoped that it will be lit at noon - the same time the Queen will light hers in London.

Jubilee bunting is currently being made to decorate the town and will be hung from the shops until after the Olympic torch has done through the town on July 4.

? To donate material for the bunting please contact Holt Town Council clerk Di Dann, on 01263 712149 or email holttown@tiscali.co.uk.
