Diamond Jubilee

Racehorse named for Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee 
Diamond Jubilee, the racehorse named to mark the only previous occasion one of our monarchs  reached the 60 year milestone, was the leading colt of his generation, winning five races in the 1900 season before being exported to stud in Argentina.

It is unlikely that Hedge End Town Council will name a racehorse to celebrate the 2012 jubilee, but the Community and Culture Committee meets on Tuesday to discuss a rather more realistic way to mark the anniversary.  It will consider the merits of working in partnership with the Hedge End Carnival Committee to stage a Jubilee Street Party with funding from the Town Council's coffers.

In what looks to be a busy evening, the committee will also discuss the Hedge End Festival at the Berry Theatre, a Hedge End calendar for 2013, twinning with Möckmühl, and the provision of grants to local organisations.

The meeting starts at 7:00pm in the 2000 Centre, and is open to the public.  The official agenda is on the Town Council's web site here.

  1. What a choice. Spending Valentines evening with Big Joolie or going to the Community & Culture Committee meeting.

    Ah well, duty calls...
