Platinum Jubilee 1950s Garden Party

Platinum Jubilee 1950s Garden Party

On Saturday 4th June 12-4pm everybody is welcome to come and celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in Evington. Bring a picnic to share, dress up in 1950s outfits if you can.

The St Denys Church car park on Church Road and the vicarage garden will be set up with stalls, games and teas as well as a couple of classic cars including a 1950s Austin Healey.

The Church itself will be open too with a display of 1950s archives and memories of the Queen’s coronation. The 2502 (Hamilton) Air Cadets will be supporting the activities and running some of the games.

Rt Rev Saju Muthalaly, the Bishop of Loughborough will be planting a tree for the jubilee and opening the community garden in the car park which was part of a Polli:Gen project with Oaklands School.

Evington’s first Faith and Friendship Tent will be launched, a beautiful portable space for making friends across different faiths and cultures. This has been a project between St Denys and Equality Action delivering the Vitaminds mental health programme. A wonderful group of local people from different backgrounds, as well as children from Krishna Avanti School, have been working with a number of artists to create stunning meaningful patches to decorate the inside of the Tent.

Come and see it all for yourself on 4th June! Something for everyone of all ages as we celebrate together.
