Otterton plans royal celebrations for diamond jubilee
Queen’s diamond jubilee celebrations should involve whole community
The village of Otterton will mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee next year with a ‘major programme of events’ - culminating in a beacon lighting ceremony.
A dozen villagers have met with parish clerk, David Ottley, and have held several meetings, forminig a ‘tentative’ plan to hold a series of events on June 2, 2012.
And 10.30 pm on Monday, June 4, has been suggested as the time for the village to join the national beacon lighting ceremony which could be on Anchoring Hill.
There have been several ideas, including a picnic and even a special plaque and ideas involving the school and Ladram Bay, but plans are still in their early stages.

Parish chairman, Councillor John Edmonds, said: “We want the whole community to get involved. We don’t want the celebrations led by the council, but by the community as well. It has to be something that the whole village wants.”
