Please send us any news, photographs or information that you would like to be considered for inclusion on this page.

Please email details to david@hundon-village.co.uk
 

Saturday 2nd June - Tuesday 5th June

 

The Diamond Jubilee is a once in a lifetime event so let's mark it in a special way. Like all community events we need your participation to make the weekend a success. Monday's Fete offers you the chance to enter as many of the events as you like, either in advance or on the day itself, particularly the Children's Fancy Dress, the Family Races, Tug of War and the Dog Show. All these events are free of charge so why not enter yourselves, family or friends.

 

In the event of a wet weekend we will be moving indoors to the Village Hall, Church and Rose A Crown. Details of what's on where will be available from the Village Hall.

 

On Fete day please do not block the roads around the Village Hall as classic vehicles will be arriving and some of these will be  quite large (Fire engine, coach, lorry, etc.).

 

Remember that the Plough Inn at Brockley Green is also holding special events over the Bank Holiday - see their advert / web site for further details.

Thank you.

During the finale a Jubilee poem was read by Marion Rowlinson:

DIAMOND JUBILEE

An up-dated version of a poem written to celebrate Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee

Clang out, wild bells, your glad acclaim:
Roar, deep-mouthed cannon, honour to her name
To her whom England loves to hail
Oldest and noblest of our noble kings
Roar loyalty and love till Heav’n’s vault rings
Flare, ye red beacons, till the stars grow pale;
Carry o’er England’s plains to ocean’s wave
The exultation of a nation’s voice;
Of thousands that as one rejoice
To honour her whom God has pleased to save

Elizabeth, 60 years our Queen
Has committed and hard-working been
To serve her country tirelessly, in doing so is rarely free
From loyal duty, busy days of State occasions,
Giving praise to those who serve their country well,
Compassion for loved ones of those who fell
Defending the freedom of our precious land

So now’s the time to celebrate
Street parties, Pageant, Village Fete
Tonight to close our village spree
We sing as one in harmony
To show affection to our Queen
And bless her Diamond Jubilee
