Little Witley unites to celebrate the Queen's Platinum Jubilee. Lighting of the Beacon, Historical and floral Exhibition in the Church, Street Party, tree planting & live screening of national events. Four days of clebrations across a wide variety of acivities to include all ages and passions within the village.. These will reflect the national Jubilee programme and joining in whenever possible, by live screening of events, lighting of the beacon, the big lunch street party and celebratory fireworks. The church exhibition will be both floral and celebrating the 70 years of the Queen's reign through village events and memories of royal involvement. Including tea & cakes and craft stalls will encourage the wider use of the church for community actitivities. This will meet the aims of the church for integral public use.

What we'll deliver:

  • Planting of 3 trees in the village hall and church grounds
  • Hiring of portaloos for church events and street party
  • Installation of new fridge freezer in the village hall
  • Purchase of outdoor chairs to accomodate numbers for activities
  • Possible hiring of marquee for inclement weather

Why it's a great idea:

The project will bring together the four Committees of the village and go beyond by involving villagers in both the planning, developing and implementation. Covid has brought village events to a minimum due to social distancing and this will regenerate the live in the village. Daily walking has meant people have met new people and walked the wider boundaries of the village. There is no pub, no shop and no facilities other than the village hall and the church within the village so it is essential to ensure the village is a lively, cohesive, interactive place to live.

Steps to get it done:

  • Trees, plants and materials for memorial garden landscaping at the village hall
  • Sharing the planting activity with members of the community
  • Adding the tree planting to the Platinum Green Canopy
  • Holding a celebration Community day to bring together all those who worked on the project

The four Committees referred to are the Village Hall, The Women's Institute, the Friends of St Michael Church and the Parish Council. Although this project may differ from others it will require the same energy, enthusiasm, hard work and financial support to achieve. The tree planting will contribute to the Queen's Green Canopy. The activity of bringing together the ese Committees together with the villagers will promote anda chieve wider Community involvement. Already invitations have been delivered inviting every household to participate and a meeting to pool ideas and plan is arranged for 23 March after more details will be formulated.
