crowds at the Queen's Jubilee

The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee

Jubilee Arrangements

It is not long now to the start of an extended Bank Holiday to celebrate our Queen’s Jubilee. We hope that you can all join us at the planned events. Around the community people have been knitting to yarn bomb the area, setting up a wild life area, producing the wooden gifts and arranging three events over the long weekend.

Our Flag Painting and Coffee Morning 30th April was a huge success. We had visitors from Toronto as well as locally. Many flags were produced by both the children and the adult artists ready for displaying in June. The day raised £231.07 to support the costs of the events. Along with the grant of £500, this will be used to make the Sunday extra special.

Some stories from 1953 were collected around the time, but we would be interested in any memories or photographs of the coronation that you or your relations have. Please send them to us on either or

Plans for the Jubilee Bank Holiday weekend:

Tuesday 31st May - Decorating the hall and car park:

  • Starting at 11:00am, we would appreciate help in decorating the hall and the car park. It should not take too long to do.
  • It would be wonderful if people could decorate their houses or gardens around the same time.

Thursday 2nd June - Candles and a Cuppa:

  • Meet at the hall at 8:30pm. We will link the lighting of the candles to the lighting of the beacons around the country at 9:15pm. A lovely chat over a cuppa at the same time.

Sunday 5th June Picnic - From 12:30 to 4:30 pm:

  • Gazebos need to be set up, tables put out and laid and flowers popped into jam jars. We would appreciate your help to set up the gazebos and tables etc in the morning. Flowers will be gratefully received. This will start from 11:00am. The team will be making sandwiches and plating cakes from around the same time.
  • Thank you to all who have offered to donate cakes etc. Please bring these to the hall after 11:00am

The Picnic:

  • We will be ready to enjoy your company from 12:30pm onwards. If you would like to bring your own food please do so, but we will have a selection of goodies to share. Tea, coffee and juice will be available as well.
  • There will be a display of photographs from the area in the Church

Sunday 5th June - Village Social Evening 5:30 to 9:30pm:

  • We welcome you all to join us for this free social evening. There will be alcoholic and soft drinks available from 5:30pm. Please bring your own drinking glasses, but if you forget, we can provide a few. Last orders are at 9:30 and the evening will end at 10:00pm.


  • All cars must be off the car park before 10:30am on Sunday 5th June, so tables can be set up. The church has offered their field for parking for this day.

Clearing-up and Memories:

  • We will be cleaning-up the hall and the car park on Monday 6th June from 11:00am. Any help would be appreciated. It is not too late to add your memories.

Historical board:

  • A board is being prepared so that we have a lasting memory of the Jubilee. It will be available at each event and the coffee morning on 18th June for everyone in the community to sign. When complete it will be displayed in the library.

Coffee Morning 18th June:

  • At this coffee morning there will be a final opportunity for people to sign the plaque which will be placed in the hall and be a historical reminder of the people in the village at this event.

Llandyssil Community Charitable Trust

Wild Flower Meadow: In honour of The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee and Peter Warlock, a renowned composer who played the organ at St. Tyssil’s Church, Llandyssil, we are creating a wildflower area in the Dragon Field in the far-left corner, near the stile.

Peter Warlock Society Grant: We’re happy to report that we received a grant of £450 from the Society to celebrate both the Peter Warlock Trail and the Wild Flower Meadow. Gwyneth Jones and I applied for an Awards for All Grant and only heard last week that this had been granted. This will allow us to purchase a picnic bench made from recycled plastic, so needs no maintenance.

To date, over 150 wildflower plants have been donated to the Meadow from local people, but we do need many more, so please pot-up whatever you’ve got and get them to Kathy at The Spires, Llandyssil (next to the Church).

Volunteer Working Party: I will set a couple of dates soon for a volunteer party to work on the site, if you can help then please contact Kathy on 01686 668922 or at

Swift Boxes: Gwyneth, with the Montgomeryshire Wildlife Trust held a session at the Church recently. We all made swift boxes – such fun and so informative.
