In words but mainly pictures, town celebrates Jubilee

Football in Whittlesey

Three local Primary schools had a great time playing a football festival at Sir Harry Smith, Park Lane, New Road and Alderman Jacobs entered a total of 8 teams playing many matches and all players receiving a memento for their efforts - Credit: Robert Windle RWT Photograph

From charity cheque presentations to Jubilee fancy dress competitions, music night and the re-election of a town mayor. 

That, and more, has been the order of the day in Whittlesey despite the weather forcing organisers to move an outdoor Jubilee party to the Ivy Leaf Club. 

Whittlesey cheque presentations

The Mayor of Whittlesey Cllr David Mason and the Mayoress Mrs Ann Mason presented cheques to their three good causes each being £1,000. The recipients were Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall, The Whittlesey Community Car scheme and the Whittlesey Sports Association. - Credit: Robert Windle RWT Photograph
