Sidbury will be celebrating the Queen's Diamond Jubilee in style with a day of events and entertainment and the lighting of a beacon.

On Saturday, June 2, celebrations begin at 1.45pm, with a procession from the village to the Millennium Green, and a commemorative photograph taken at 2.30pm.

The theme is red and white, and villagers are invited to bring a picnic with them, and Sidbury’s new choir will perform, with a bouncy castle and face painting on offer for children.

Organisers also say everyone is welcome to participate in a game of rounders, and the village marquee will be erected on the green with a Pimms bar.

The evening starts with a hog roast and live music from the Raphaelites, and a firework display is planned for 11pm, with free entry for residents of Sidbury.

The following day there will be church service followed by refreshments at 10.30am, and on Monday, June 4 at 10pm, the village will light a beacon on Evergreen Hill.
