Picnic in the park

WHY not celebrate the Queen’s Diamond jubilee with a picnic in the park? The Big Jubilee Lunch has been adopted as part of the programme of events announced by Buckingham Palace in celebration of HM The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

The Big Jubilee Lunch will take place on Sunday June 3, 2012 and a record number of people are expected to take part in street parties and community events right across the UK.

Big Jubilee lunches can take place in the street, park, back garden or local community venue and range from just a few neighbours getting together to a whole village or town celebration. All local authorities have been asked to support this initiative.

Barrow Park will be promoted as a venue for The Big Jubilee Lunch in Barrow.

It is an excellent setting for the Big Jubilee Lunch or in this case a picnic, where friends and neighbours can meet and families enjoy the facilities of the park in mid summer. The park will be decked with bunting and union jack flags given to children. Music will be provided by Attic/Unity in the bandstand from 12 noon to 6 pm.

HM The Queen, has sent a message to all holders of Big Jubilee Lunches: “I am delighted that the organisers of The Big Lunch are helping people from across the United Kingdom and further afield to hold Big Jubilee Lunches as part of the celebrations to mark my Diamond Jubilee in 2012.

“I send my very best wishes to you and all of those who will be present for what I hope will be a most memorable and enjoyable event.”
