Streams of bunting will be hung around Woodley in the summer when the town throws a children’s party to commemorate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
Plans are underway for a Diamond Jubilee celebration to be held on Sunday, June 3, in honour of the queen’s 60th year on the throne.
Town centre manager Jacques Lherbier outlined plans for members of the Woodley Town Centre Management Initiative (WTCMI) at a meeting on Wednesday, January 25.
He said: “We have made provisions to allocated £2,500 from next year’s budgets which is going to pay for a Punch and Judy or similar show. We will also have the animals from Millers Ark Farm as they were very successful at last year’s fun day.”
Members of the forum welcomed plans to celebrate the jubilee and raised a number of additional suggestions. They agreed to discuss proposals further as part of a Diamond Jubilee working committee.
