Wymondham College wins tickets for Commonwealth Day observance

A Norfolk college will be among hundreds of schools at the Commonwealth Day observance at Westminster Abbey today to mark the start of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebrations.

Wymondham College won the tickets after entering a Jubilee Time Capsule schools competition, encouraging people in Commonwealth countries across the world to create an online time capsule as a Diamond Jubilee gift for the Queen.

Members of the public are invited to select a memorable day during the Queen's reign between February 6 1952 and June 6 2012 and contribute videos, photos and text to explain why it is important to them. The observance will include a performance by South African musician Hugh Masekela.
