Family fun day for the jubilee
FAMILIES will be celebrating the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee with a service and a lunch being held in Peterborough.
The event will be held in the main square at Ortongate Shopping Centre on Sunday, June 3.
The service, which will be led by members of Christ Church in Orton Goldhay, will take place at 11.30am. It will be followed by a Big Jubilee Lunch starting at 1pm.
The 300 children and residents taking part in the lunch won their places at a prize draw picked by Councillor June Stokes and Councillor Gavin Elsey.
Ortongate Centre manager and event organiser Paul Chippington said: “The free lunch is open to selected local residents and schoolchildren from the Ortons area along with their families.
“Local councillors June Stokes and Gavin Elsey attended a live draw on Wednesday 16th May and drew the lucky winning 300 names for the free Jubilee Lunch.
“Following the draw, the councillors announced that in support of local community cohesion they would make a £500 donation to Christ Church Jubilee Luncheon, on behalf of CBRE residents and the local community as a heartfelt thank you.
“There will also be five hours of children’s and family entertainment, a Jubilee-themed fancy dress competition with prizes supplied by Wilkinsons.”
There will be a raffle draw with prizes donated by QD, Anglia Co-operative, Lloyds Pharmacy, Wherry Housing Association and May’s Discount Furniture Store.
