Parish Council announces open meeting on 21 February to formulate Stonesfield's celebrations of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee

Wendy Gould of Stonesfield Parish Council:

On Monday, 4th June, Stonesfield will be laying on a day of celebration when there should be something for everybody.  All the village clubs and organisations are offering to take part in the festivities when we hope to have food, sport, plays, music, dressing-up, heritage corner and a Jubilee beacon to round it all off at the end of the day.  There is room for more if anyone has been missed out.

To catch up with the programme so far and discuss further ideas please come along to a meeting in the Village Hall on Tues, 21 Feb.
