The Jubilee, from Marwood Matters

What a fantastic Marwood Jubilee celebration.  After 2 years of lockdowns and regulations it was so good to meet together again and, as the Queen herself said, ‘to make happy memories’.  

     The main parish event was held in the lovely garden at the Old Rectory, many thanks to Margaret.  We enjoyed great weather, delicious food & drinks, music and various activities.  Thanks to all who helped with advertising, running the raffle, providing food, setting up, clearing away and the myriad of other tasks. 

     However, there is one person who made all this happen – Angela, who had sleepless nights thinking about it all.  She co-ordinated the event and oversaw all the arrangements brilliantly. We are all so grateful to you Angela. Thank you.                                                      Margaret Greenslade.  

Marwood Jubilee Celebration

 

Thank you to everyone who participated in our celebration either before, during or after the event.

       Your attendance made for a community day to remember. We mixed and mingled in a beautiful garden, listened to delightful music and ate far too much delicious picnic food.

       The children played while we chatted to old friends and made new ones, some over a pint and others over an ice cream but all of us in dry weather.

      Your generosity buying raffle tickets and making donations means we have raised approx £400 for the parish of Marwood to purchase something to commemorate the Jubilee. If you have any firm views about what this should be please let me know.  Angela Webb 01271 376744
