2022 Jubilee Events – 2nd & 3rd June

  • Off

CVRA are excited to host two events, on 2nd & 3rd June, to celebrate The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. More details can be found in the Platinum Jubilee Flyer

The CVRA would like to express their sincere thanks to Keydell Nurseries and other local businesses for their support with the above two events; and “Achoired Taste” – who are a Community Choir led by Lou Bundy for their entertainment and leading us in the “Song For The Commonwealth”.

The CVRA would also like to thank Catherington Infant School and Horndean Junior School for their excellent artwork so that we could produce the banners in the Village.

The Charity chosen for these two events is the “The Disasters Emergency Committee in support of Ukraine”. Donations are instead of an entrance ticket so please give generously!
