To start the Jubilee Weekend Celebrations, Beacons were lit around the country. So on the Thursday evening, about 80 people descended on Thornfalcon Church for a picnic, followed by a walk up the Clump to light the Beacon.

Ham Regatta

 

On Saturday 4th June the village of Ham held a Regatta to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee of the Queen.

Lots of people came men, women and children to have fun on the river before the races started. It was held at Ham Mill and there were several races, largely in canoes, from the Weir to Coal Harbour at the end of the village.

It was all organised by three fairly new gentleman to the village, Mark Heller, James Caley and Arthur Owen.

It was such a friendly community event of fun and laughter. This was wonderful, especially for the older members of the village, for these people to organise such an event which really helped to the village.

The races were really fun to watch and the winners were a couple, a man and a woman. They were presented with a gold cup.I think the event will be repeated next year with even more races.

On Sunday there was a Jubilee tea. Despite the rain we had a lovely time eating wonderful cakes and a cream tea.

Creech St. Michael

 

 

Residents of Dillons Road in Creech St. Michael, plus a few from further afield, marked the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee by holding a street party.  Around 50 people, aged from 1 to 101, gathered together to celebrate this historic event with music, a quiz and jubilee hats!  We raised a toast to Her Majesty and shared a splendid cake.  Against all expectations the sun came out and a good time was had by all.
