Join the Platinum Jubilee celebrations

Join the Platinum Jubilee celebrations!
This year Her Majesty The Queen will become the first
British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee after 70
years of service.
To celebrate this, The Platinum Jubilee Central
Weekend takes place from next Thursday (2 June) until
Sunday 5 June.
Local celebrations include:
• A number of events being hosted by West
Sussex Libraries, including Royal Storytimes, Hunt the Missing Corgis, Royal
Afternoon Tea and other free events for people of all ages. Our Libraries are
also supporting The Big Jubilee Read, which celebrates writing from across
the Commonwealth with 70 great reads from Queen Elizabeth II’s 70 year
• Meals on Wheels customers will be receiving lemon drizzle cake as part of
their meal to celebrate the occasion.
• Many West Sussex schools are holding celebrations for pupils before the
start of half-term next week.
