Platinum Jubilee Beach Party
Thursday 7th July 2022
Jennifer Spear - Clerk to Manningtree Town Council
Manningtree Town Council were so happy to have an amazing Celebration with the residents of Manningtree on the first evening if the nationwide celebration of the Queens Platinum Jubilee. We were serenaded by a wonderful local singer, Graham Long encompassing many hits from the Queens Reign.
We served a wonderful Hog Roast for free, which had mostly been paid for with a donation from the National Lottery, we also served free soft drinks (helped with a donation from the Co-op).
At the end of the evening we held a candle light procession through the Town to mark the official Lighting of the Beacon, finished off with prayers and the national Anthem.
Manningtree Town Council would like to thank all of the residents that came out to celebrate with us. All the proceeds from the evening were donated to Acorn Village.
Love where you live.
