Woodley’s Big Jubilee Lunch

Over 1000 people attended Woodley’s Big Jubilee Lunch

Woodley’s Big Jubilee Lunch was opened by the Woodley Town Mayor, Cllr Janet Sartorel, welcoming over 1000 local residents to the event.

Janet introduced her special guests at the Top Table:

“May I please introduce my special guests, who are the winners from the Town Council’s Jubilee Stones competition.  Edward – who won the under 5s category with his wonderful design of The Queen wearing her crown.  Abhyuday – who won the 6-8 years category with his very detailed design marking 70 years of Her Majesty’s reign. Abbey – who won the 9-12 years category with her contemporary and colourful silhouette of Queen Elizabeth the second.  I am also joined by Woodley’s Deputy Town Mayor, Councillor Kay Gilder and our consorts.”

The day started with the Bailey Dolls singing songs from the 1940s and 1950s, followed by Pauly Zarb and his band playing songs up to the present day.

Children were entertained by Professor Crump who mingled in his stilts and assorted costumes, including taking children for rides on his scooter.

Children also had the opportunity to draw with chalk around the precinct and make royal crowns.

Maya’s Treats in the town centre provided free ice cream for hundreds of children, while Basil & Crew came with a small petting zoo. 

Woodley Town Council and the Woodley Town Centre Partnership would like to thank everyone who came to Woodley’s Big Jubilee Lunch.

The Jubilee Stones will be unveiled on 16th June at the opening of Woodford Park play area.
