Plans for the Queen's Platinum Jubilee

Published: 31 March 2022

A small group of Community Councillors and residents have formed a working group to look at ways for the Community to mark and celebrate the 70 year reign of our Queen.
Whilst the Community Council have allocated a budget, it will be keeping costs to a minimum. The following is an outline of the proposed events:
Friday, 3rd June 2022 – starting at 2pm, a “Big Platinum Jubilee Lunch” in Magor Square.
This street party is planned as a Bring Your Own event (chair, food and drink).
Tickets will be available at £1 per head to reserve your place, with an expected maximum capacity of 150 people. A raffle will be held to re-distribute the monies received.
Music and entertainment have been booked.
Saturday, 4th June 2022 – starting at 2pm, a Fancy Dress Parade from Magor Square to Sycamore Playing Field where it’s hoped everyone will join in a Platinum Jubilee Picnic and judging will take place – with prizes awarded for the following age categories:
Under 5’s
Ages 5-8
Ages 9-12
Over 12’s
ALL WELCOME - Please bring your own food, drink and picnic rug etc.
The suggested theme for the Fancy Dress – is the 7 decades of the Queen’s reign.
Other visible signs to mark the Platinum Jubilee include:
• Monmouthshire County Council has been approached to assist with hanging bunting through Magor Square for the month of June
• Members of Crafty Together will be providing themed bollards for additional decoration.
We would love for more residents to volunteer, to join the Working Group and to help with these events as we further progress these initial plans.
Our next Working Group meeting is Tuesday 29th March, 6pm
