Queen's Platinum Jubilee 2-5 June 2022

Wed, 4 May 2022

On 2nd June 2022 we celebrate a unique milestone in our history, Her Majesty The Queen’s 70th year as our Monarch and Head of the Commonwealth, her Platinum Jubilee, something no previous monarch has achieved!

To mark the event the Council will be placing Lamp post signs around the town from next week.

Shortly before the Jubilee weekend, the children's Jubilee artwork (https://wincantontowncouncil.gov.uk/jubilee-events-and-news!.html) will be displayed in a prominent public space.

On Friday 3rd June between 11.30am-4pm (or while stocks last), Bootmakers will be serving free candy floss and crepes through its Church Street window.  This is the Workshop’s thank you to the town for its continued support, and more specifically in recognition of the town children’s hard work making Jubilee artwork.  Also on Friday, Cale Park Kitchen will be hosting a picnic in Cale Park. 

On Saturday 4th June at 11am, the Wincanton bellringers will ring for 20-30 mins outside the Library in Carrington Way and on Sunday 5th June, St Peter & St Paul's will hold a special Jubilee church service.
