Rotary and Jubilee

Jubilee emblem

Cranleigh’s celebrations of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee on 3 June included a civic service at St. Nicolas Parish Church, followed by The Big Lunch at Snoxhall Pavilion and the nearby playing fields between 12 noon and 2 p.m.

A special cake, provided by local baker and Rotarian Tom Cornwell, was cut by local councillors and the mayor-elect from Waverley Borough Council.  
The loyal grace was read out by Kimberley Brown, who was recently sponsored by the Rotary Club of Cranleigh to participate in the RYLA course, as part of her leadership training, which she so enjoyed.

Musical accompaniment was provided by Alan Field, and the Scouts kept providing extra tents and coverings so that people could take shelter in the variable weather.

Races for the youngsters also took place, with prizes of stationery sets, piggy banks and caps, plus Community Games stickers donated by the Rotary Club, and souvenir booklets, courtesy of a local business, to serve as lasting reminders of a great lunch!

On Monday, 4 June, the beacon lighting ceremony took place at around 10 p.m. on Snoxhall fields, one of many similar ceremonies taking place across the country to celebrate the Jubilee. Jubilee cale cutting 3 June 2012
