Jubilee Celebrations

Published: Thursday 26th Apr 2012

There is suddenly a lot of chat about Jubilee Celebrations in the area, I guess a year on from the Royal Wedding everyone is looking forward to another Royal Celebration. The village of Goudhurst has a charming plan to replicate the celebrations they held to mark the Coronation. A full scale model of the Houses of Parliament is being erected by the village pond where village children will sail their boats in an echo of the river pageant that is taking place on the Thames. Such a quaint idea that conjures up a charming image of English Country traditions. Next stop the Parish Hall for tea and cakes and a large TV screen showing the real Jubilee Pageant live on the Thames. Magic!
