Platinum Jubilee Celebrations


Hello Everybody,


I just want to say thank you to all of you in the village who came to the Great Comberton Jubilee Party and made it such a successful and enjoyable event, it was so lovely to see you all there. My apologies for the very late decision to relocate this party from Russell Street to the Village Hall but a decision had to be made due to the bad weather forecast and I think it was the correct one.


I must add a very very big thank you to those of you who helped in some way or other to make this event the success it undoubtedly was; with the planning beforehand, on the day itself, and afterwards clearing up the site. Months of planning and activity went into making this party go with such a swing.  Some of you very generously loaned vital equipment that we needed to keep the inclement weather out, such as the Village Hall and three gazebos together with extra chairs and tables. Others helped with decorating the hall and tents with all of the table decorations and bunting being specially made for this event; how lovely it all looked! We were entertained with well-chosen music and super commentary throughout the afternoon kept  us all informed as to what was going on through a great PA system. Others donated the BBQ and several stalwarts bought, and then cooked all the delicious hot food for us to enjoy.  Prizes were won for costumes, cakes and games and awards given by our judges who kindly gave their time to perform this task.

At the lovely Tea and Scones event last Friday your overwhelming generosity gave us a head start towards the procurement, and installation, of a Platinum Jubilee Commemorative Bench for our Churchyard. Many of you have already contributed via the Just Giving page;

this will remain open for a while for those of you who still might like to contribute towards this very worthy cause. Many of you also enjoyed completing the village Treasure Hunt that had a few of us somewhat perplexed!


 It is this enduring community spirit that makes this village the friendly, helpful, and thoughtful community that it is and your social club committee is truly thankful for all the support it receives from you, so here’s to our next event and I look forward to meeting you all again very soon. If you have any ideas and suggestions for future events then please do get in touch.
