Monday 4th June, 2012 is the day the parishioners in Greasley have chosen for their celebrations to honour the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.

And what a day it promises to be, starting off with a Jubilee Breakfast Walk through D.H.Lawrence's "country of my heart" and culminating with the lighting of a brazier, part of the national chain of beacons, to be followed by a Grand Finale firework display.

The provisional programme includes a red London bus providing free tours of the Parish throughout the day and everyone is invited to a patriotic sing-along of the nation's favourite tunes including the National Anthem.

Traditional games, competitions and live entertainment will also feature in the day long programme. As and when arrangements are confirmed the details and updates will be posted in this section.

"At this stage it is very much a case of work in progress," said a Jubilee spokesman. "Ideas for the celebration are still being received and developed."

Starting with the breakfast walk from Beauvale Priory, the draft programme includes children's sports and fancy dress competitions, decorated cake challenge and a penalty shoot out game. Local entertainer Frankie Martin will be in concert and in addition to an open day offering trips to the top of the tower, Greasley Parish Church will host a Jubilee peal of bells.

Jubilee ales and pork pies will be on offer as well as rides on an iconic London bus and plans are also being made for a parish wide scarecrow competition.

We are still open to suggestions for other celebrations but events will only happen if organisations come forward to be involved. They can register their ideas and interest on 01773 760363," added the spokesman.
