Special event to mark Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in Shaw

CELEBRATE the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee at a special event on Thursday, June 2.

The gathering in the Memorial Gardens in Shaw has been organised by Shaw and Crompton Liberal Democrat councillors.

At 2pm there will be the reading of the proclamation by the Town Crier.

Then in the evening there will be an event with music and performances, as well as the lighting of the beacon, which is part of a chain around the country.

Cllr Diane Williamson said: “We are excited to announce that soprano Elizabeth Phillips, who is a former Crompton House School pupil, will be performing with her former school’s choir and band.

“As Elizabeth is signing ‘A Life lived with Grace’ the beacon will be lit.

“A huge thank you must go to the people of Shaw and Crompton who have come together and embraced the idea of celebrating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

“There are so many events happening from individual street parties to local pubs holding events, shop windows being dressed and a fantastic display of union flag plus so much more.”

The Jubilee celebrations mark the Queen’s 70 years of service to the people of the United Kingdom, the Realms, and the Commonwealth – the first British Monarch to do so. The four-day UK bank holiday weekend marks the culmination of many events.
