Village’s plea to help mark jubilee
A ROYAL invitation has gone out to people in Peterborough to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
Villagers in Eye have organised a series of celebrations, beginning at St Matthew’s Church in Eye, on June 3.
Cream teas will be served in the grounds of the church between 2.30pm and 5pm and there will be an informal, open air service at 3pm.
Visitors will also have the chance to take part in The Big Jubilee Thank You and express their appreciation of The Queen’s 60 years of loyal service.
This national project invites people to add their good wishes to a letter from their diocesan bishop, to Her Majesty The Queen.
The greetings from the Peterborough Diocese will be added to those gathered at churches up and down the country, and presented to The Queen during in her Jubilee year.
A spokesman for the organisers said: “The St Matthew’s Church music group will play at the service in Eye, which will be suitable for all ages, from the very young upwards.”
