Jubilee Weekend Roundup

Proud to say that Dallington held celebration events on every day of the Jubilee weekend – and we were so lucky with the weather! Here’s a brief round up and a gallery of photographs.

    • Thursday Evening BBQ & Beacon: A wonderful evening – lots of people turned up to take part to enjoy the barbecue and good company and watch the beacon being lit. Thanks to everyone who made this happen – from initial planning and publicity, getting the pavilion and field ready the day before, the parish council for funding the food and drink, the individuals who cooked and served it, and finally the beacon team for assembling, lighting and keeping everything safe.
    • Friday Bellringing at St Giles Dallington Tower rang at 3pm, along with many other towers, to coincide with a Service of Thanksgiving at St Paul’s Cathedral  that day.
    • Saturday  Our regular monthly Saturday morning Community Library Café at Dallington Old School Village Hall was extended to 4pm for the occasion.  Visitors were able to view a temporary exhibition “Dallington Celebrates” – a display of photographs and souvenirs from village events over the years including Coronation celebrations in 1953, summer fetes, harvest festivals, street parties and open gardens.  There was also a chance to take part in a fun snooker competition in the newly refurbished Billiard Room. Thanks to everyone who lent photographs, scrap books and souvenirs, and to our volunteers who provided  bacon sandwiches, soup and delicious home-made cakes throughout the day.
    • Sunday am Thanksgiving service at St Giles (report from Bobbie Steel): Along with churches throughout this country and the Commonwealth, Dallington celebrated the Platinum Jubilee of Her Majesty The Queen. It happened to be one of the Sundays when we were without a member of the clergy present to lead the service. On these occasions our Churchwarden, Wendy Miers, prepares and presents the order of service, with a talk on a relevant person or subject. On this momentous day, when the focus was on Thanksgiving for Service, Wendy chose as her theme thanks to the members of the church family who had given unstinting service over long years. A good number in the congregation ensured that the lovely hymns were sung with enthusiasm, all rounded off with The National Anthem. After the service everyone enjoyed the refreshments with a loyal toast to Her Majesty. This was just one of the ways in which our village marked a very special, once in a lifetime, “Thank you” to our Queen.
    • Sunday pm Despite gloomy weather forecasts earlier in the week, the rain held off for our final village celebration, back on the recreation ground for a relaxed afternoon picnic tea & games and a drone to take a group village photograph of all present.

Jubilee Beacon & Barbecue

Beacon litLovely to see such a good turn out for this evenings inaugural Jubilee event at the Dallington Recreation ground.

Children playing on the field, lots of people enjoying the barbecue food and drink.

The beacon was lit a bit earlier than scheduled as people were beginning to get cold but was still roaring away happily at 9.45 when the national chain of beacons lit up.  Thanks to everyone involved in organising the event, bringing and cooking food & drink, and lighting the beacon .

And don’t forget tomorrow (Friday 3rd) bellringing at 3 pm, then on Saturday the community library cafe will have an extended opening from 10-4 at the Old School village hall in The Street – bacon sandwiches, cakes and refreshments all day, an exhibition of photographs of Dallington celebrations and events from the Coronation onwards, and a chance to see the newly refurbished Billiard room and take part in a lighthearted contest  – how many balls can you pot in 5 minutes?
