The Queen's Diamond Jubilee provides another great opportunity for Bollington to celebrate and have fun! Bollington Town Council and others have arranged for a number of public events to take place over the Jubilee weekend and everyone is invited to join in!

The ParadeSunday 3rd June 2012 -
The Parade!

From Adelphi Mill to the Recreation Ground along the Middlewood Way, led by the Mayor of Bollington, Cllr Ken Edwards, and Bollington Brass Band. The theme is fancy dress representing anything within the 60 years of the Queen’s reign. So almost anything goes — well almost!

Picture shows the Mayor entering the Recreation Ground through a Guard of Honour found by the local Womens Institute, each with a brolly held high to protect them from the appalling weather!

New! See the Jubilee Parade on YouTube!

Sunday 3rd June 2012 -
The Big Lunch!

On the Recreation Ground. This is also the destination of the Parade. Stalls and rides, family cricket, climbing wall, bouncy castle and obstacle course all had to be cancelled due to the rain and wind. Ice Cream and BBQ were still popular as those attending - more than 100 hardy folk - stood around to enjoy their lunch and chat to others!

FireworksMonday 4th June 2012 - Treasure Hunt!

Starting from the Arts Centre. Find the Crown Jewels were hidden around Bollington. There was a guaranteed prize for each child plus additional prizes for bringing back the 'crown jewels'!

Monday 4th June 2012 - Beacon & Fireworks!

A Beacon on White Nancy was lit at 10.05pm, one of more than 4,000 across the Country. This was followed by a spectacular 10 minute firework display on the Recreation Ground at 10.30pm! A licensed bar and BBQ were available on the Recreation Ground!
