Platinum Jubilee

Queens Platinum Jubilee Celebrations


We have been working hard behind the scenes to organise a Jubilee weekend for the Village but are now in desperate need of HELP!  Many thanks for those who have come forward so far.

We need people to volunteer as Marshals for the Fun Runs and the Saturday games.

We also need people to man the tea tent on the Family Fun Day and the BBQ planned for the Ceilidh - we would like to have a 1 hour rota so need quite a few people for each.

Without the help of the village, the celebrations will not be possible, so please offer your help.


Below is the agenda for the entire long weekend and we are really looking forward to a range of activities.  We would like people to register their interest or book not for the events shown so we can ensure that we have sufficient resources.  See Dunston FB page for updates.
