Whittlesey prepares for Diamond Jubilee

A SPECTACULAR party will be held in Whittlesey to mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

Whittlesey Town Council has announced details of the celebrations due to take place on Monday, June 4.

Events will kick off in the afternoon with a heritage food festival and stalls organised by Fenland societies.

By evening bands will take to the stage at the Manor Leisure Centre for a concert to round off the event.

Throughout the day there will also be vintage vehicles, bouncy castles, pony rides and attractions for all the family.

Whittlesey Mayor Kay Mayor said it would be an “exciting” event.

“We are hoping that people will support the event in advance by buying tickets for the fundraising duck race along the Bower to be held on Bank Holiday Monday, May 7 or by booking stalls.
