Town marks the Jubilee in style

A TOWN’S historical society and Methodist church are joining forces to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

In the Goliath Hall there will be a display of photographs of the town from the past 60 years, including pictures with a sporting theme. In the chapel there will also be an exhibition of wedding dresses from each decade of the Queen’s reign with relevant photographs and floral displays.

Refreshments will be available throughout the bank holiday weekend and admission is free. The exhibitions will be open from 10am to 4pm on the Saturday and Monday and from 2pm to 4pm on the Sunday.

The church will also hold a Right Royal Breakfast from 9am on June 2.
