Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Celebrations

Celebrating The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee!

The Parish Council would like to offer a big ‘Thank You’ to the thousands of you who joined us on Thursday 2 June 2022 at a series of events across the Ecclesfield Parish to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee – which marks Her Majesty the Queen’s 70 years of service.

The festivities began with the Town Crier (Councillor John Housley, Chairman of the Parish Council) making a proclamation across various locations heralding the lighting of the beacons later that day.

This was followed in the afternoon by a ‘Decorate a cake a fit for the Queen’ competition and the announcement of the winner of the school’s bunting competition.

The day culminated with music, entertainment, community singing and other festivities as well as the lighting of beacons at Grenoside and Chapeltown parks.

Our ‘Decorate a cake fit for The Queen’ winners are as follows:

Under 11s category-WINNER- L Mellors

Under 11s category-RUNNER UP – B Noble

11-14 category- WINNER – G L Waldron
