2012 Jubilee Street Party

On June 4th 2012 Stow Bedon hosted a street party in honour of Her Majesty the Queen to celebrate her 60th year as our monarch. Below you will find a selection of some of the pictures that were taken on that day at the street party. If you were present and have any pictures you would like to share with everyone (not just the residents of Stow Bedon & Breckles) please send them to the Chairman whose address can be found on the Councillors & Clerk page.

We hope you enjoy looking at these pictures and that they bring back some wonderful memories of that special day. Enjoy.....

The Parish Council was pleased to be able to fund the purchase of some commemorative mugs, one for every child in the parish. These were handed out to the children by the Chairman of the Council at the street party. Any children not able to be present at the party had mugs distributed by a member of the organizing committee.

Chairman of the Parish Council hands a commemorative mug to Margaret Morfoot as prize for the best hat (adult entry, of course). The hat was inspired by Margaret's mother who also used to sport a hat of similar design at fetes and functions. A picture of Margaret's mother wearing her hat was also worn with pride around Margaret's neck.
Fun and games

A rather fast and furious game of Pass the Parcel was enjoyed by lots of the children at the street party, with more than just a main prize at the end of the game as there were mini surprises along the way hidden between some of the layers of wrapping paper.

Lucy chooses her prize, a medal with a brightly coloured red, white and blue ribbon, for the best hat (child entry). Should have got a prize for the face painting too! Well done Lucy!
Another excellent hat, the winner receives his medal

With so many excellent entries in the best hat category it was very difficult to choose, but this one obviously looks regal enough to warrant recognition by way of a medal, marks were given by everyone at the street party, hats of to everyone that entered....

This entrant was very lucky her cake ever got to the competition judging, as it was being eyed up as fair game by more than a few people, myself included! But happily made it to the competition unscathed.
