Scores turn out for gladiator battle and hog roast for Coldham Jubilee

MORE than 150 people turned out for a live band, hog roast and gladiator challenge for Jubilee celebrations in Coldham,

The Coldham Residents Action Group hosted the Jubilee Hog Roast on Monday to mark the occasion for the villages of both Coldham and Elm.

Davod Brand, secretary of the group, said: “The initial damp weather did not dampen spirits, with people sheltered by a marquee and the band playing from an lorry trailer.

“We would like to thank all our sponsors including Fenland District and Elm Parish Councils, Knowles Transport all those people who helped setting up ready for the event and clearing away at the end, and finally all those who attended and helped make it an enjoyable event.”
