Help for jubilee celebrations
01 June 2022
The Lancashire team has helped residents in a regional village to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee after donating £500 to the event.
The Broughton Jubilee Street Party will take place along Garstang Road on Sunday 5th June, from 11am into the evening.
Diane Finch, sales director for Lancashire, said: “We are always keen to support community events in the areas where we are building, and there can be no better reason for a party than the Queen’s 70 years on the throne.
“We are pleased to help the people of Broughton to mark this occasion with a good old fashioned village street party and hope everyone enjoys a right royal knees-up.”
The celebrations start at 11am with music from Preston Pipes and Drums and Preston Concert Band, followed by performances by Broughton High School students and Broughton Hand Bell Ringers.
Guests are invited to enter into the spirit of the day by dressing in 1950s themed outfits, with prizes for the best costumes. Creative villagers can also enter the village’s Jubilee Photo Competition, with the best 12 images to be incorporated into a fundraising calendar.
A wide range of stalls will offer local produce and handcrafts as well as entertaining side shows arranged by the Scouts and Guides.
Visitors will be able to judge the Jubilee themed cakes created by Broughton WI and, after the Jubilee lunch, local children will take part in a ‘Crown Parade’. In the evening, activity moves into the concert hall at the Broughton Club for a concert by Miss Soulful.
Diane added: “In addition to one-off projects like this, we make two donations every month to support grassroots charities, clubs, schools and voluntary groups through our Community Champions scheme.
“Applications for up to £1,000 can be made by completing a simple online form at www.persimmonhomes.com/charity .”
