As well as a day of celebration, the Jubilee Fete is an opportunity to support two local charities that do so much to help people in our area – Bell View at Belford, and the Northumberland Hospice.
We are running two charity stalls and giving the proceeds to the two charities – a plant stall and a bookstall. You can help by browsing and buying, and by donating books and plants for us to sell.
So if your garden is bursting with spare plants, or you are burdened with books you no longer read, bring them along. You can deliver them to the Common on Friday as we set up the event, or drop us a message and we’ll collect.
There will be a street party on the day of the Jubilee Fete to which all are welcome. There will be a bar, ices, and tea and cakes on sale, but the party really depends on YOU! Please bring food to share, whether it’s cakes or sandwiches, jelly, crisps, party sausages, a bowl of tomatoes, pies, finger foods of the fifties – what you bring will make the party a treat!
And bring a flag to wave!
Can you come up with a design for a crown, and make it for the Jubilee Fete on the 4th?
You can use any materials you have to hand. You could even bake a cake! It can be any size, any colour – and it doesn’t need to be wearable – just original and amazing!
Bring your crown to the Fete to be judged and win one of our jubilee mugs as a prize.
Do you have a love of jigsaws and can’t wait to start a new one? Last year we introduced the village bus shelter book box, thanks to Glendale Connect.
We’ve gone a little further and added a box for jigsaw swaps. There are already two puzzles there waiting for you to try.
- Swap or borrow a jigsaw
- Try to bring it back if you just borrow
- Donate a iigsaw if there is room in the box
- please don’t donate or swap a puzzle with missing parts.
Ten years since the last jubilee fete in Lowick – and the fete on the Common, the jubilee queen procession, the music…………..
And now we’re back again to create some fresh memories, and to celebrate a remarkable life once again.
Do you have any photos or video from any of these village events? If you have, and would like to share them, I’m hoping to put together a video presentation to be shown during our Fifties Film Festival.
Please send via email any images you have, and are happy to share, to me at email@example.com.
Thanks. John Huddart
