Jubilee Message from the Rector

imageIt happens every time! Every time there is a national event Henley rises to the occasion. Congratulations to the Jubilee Committee and everyone who has taken part.

There is a strength and depth to our town's life and that is what we will be celebrating at the Community Thanksgiving Service, 10 am on 3rd June in St. John's.

The High Bailiff and I took the decision to rebrand our annual Civic Service as a Community Thanksgiving Service. Council members, Fire, Police & Medical Services, schools, clubs, churches, businesses and organisations have been invited to join together for an uplifting Service followed by Court Leet refreshments in the Guildhall Garden. The response has been very positive as we recognise our togetherness. Hopefully we will build on this enthusiasm for next year, invite more people and involve more people in the Service.

The Jubilee spirit is primarily focused on the Queen but it is also about celebrating our common identity.

Let us thank God for all that unites us and let's celebrate right across the weekend!

John Ganjavi


Message from the Chairman of the Parish Council

imageThe Joint Parish Council is sure that all the residents and visitors will enjoy the 3 days of events organised by the Henley-in-Arden Queen's Diamond Jubilee Committee.

We hope that as many people as possible can participate in these community activities and that the weather is kind.

We are confident that a fitting memorial will be found to remember this event in the years to come.

Cllr Leslie Goodman
Chairman
Beaudesert and Henley-in-Arden Joint Parish Council


A weekend of Great Celebrations

Writes John Alexander, Chairman of the Main Organising Committee

imageBack in November 2011 the Diamond Jubilee Organising Committee was formed and the planning started for three iconic events. Separate committees were formed and they have worked diligently to organise each event. The planning is now complete and we are in the final countdown to a series of great celebrations the like of which Henley will not have seen this century.

The Lord Lieutenant of Warwickshire, Martin Dunne who is the Queen's representative in the County, has commended the town saying, "Your plans for the first weekend in June really do include something for everyone to enjoy and should be a lot of fun. That is just how the Queen would like it."

I hope you all enjoy our town's celebrations and I thank all those who have worked hard over many months to raise the money and organise these marvelous events.

John Alexander

THE BIG LUNCH becomes The BIGGEST EVENT

Writes Sue Osborne Chairman of the BIG Lunch Committee

imageThe Big Lunch site at the playing fields on the Stratford Road behind the Tennis Club will be open for residents to deliver tables, chairs and gazebos, if wanted, between 10.30 and 11.30 on Sunday morning, but vehicles must be off the public area by 11.30.

Church goers need not worry; the Rector has already booked one of the largest pitches. However, you will need to carry your picnic from the car park unless you have been issued with a special pass for disabled guests.

The whole site will be open for all to arrive from 12 noon. If driving, please go past the tennis courts down to the field gate at the bottom on the right, from where you will directed to the car park by members of the Henley Rotary Club.

imageJohnsons have kindly agreed to stop the X20 at the entrance to the playing fields, and for the return, in the lay-by at Warwickshire College.

The Big Lunch will be officially opened by the Town Crier at 12.30. This will begin a whole afternoon of fun. There will be a large children’s play area with two bouncy castles, one for up to 3 years old and one for up to 11 years, face painting, balloon modeling, a craft table to make your own crown (with assistance!), skittle alley, hoop-la and a stall selling helium balloons and flags.

John Johnson will be running the Johnsons Cycle Scramble, so bring bicycles and helmets. The Hub will be in charge of a mini sports day for budding young Olympians. There will be all the traditional races, including egg & spoon, sack race, three legged race, parents' race.

Add to all this a pig roast, pasta stall, ice cream tricycle, a licensed bar and our own butcher Rob Mills selling his best picnic foods. So those who don’t want to carry a picnic will be well catered for.

During the afternoon there will be music from a fairground organ and three jazz bands. A professional photographer will be circulating to record the event and your individual parties. Finally, important messages will be broadcast over the PA system by a professional announcer.

Please register below, if you haven't already, as we need to know the numbers coming. Everyone is welcome, even if you don't live in Henley.

Finally, please remember entrance to the event is FREE. All the costs have been paid for by our Sponsors and Supporters, whom we thank for their generosity.

Lunch in the Diamond Jubilee Garden

Writes Douglas Bridgewater of the Jubilee Garden Committee

A welcoming glass of fizz, followed by a 3-course sit-down lunch by Sue Dalby Catering.

There is no better way of spending Monday afternoon in Henley than lunching in the increasingly attractive surroundings of the Jubilee Garden (a cautionary note - lunch will be served in the Beaudesert Church rooms if wet). A licensed bar will be available. This is the Guild Hall Garden Committee’s contribution to the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and celebrates the renaming of the Riverland Garden as the Jubilee Garden.

An Afternoon with Retrojazz

Torchlight Procession to the Mount & Fireworks

imageThe Henley and District Branch of the Royal British Legion is privileged to be part of The Queen's Diamond Jubilee Beacons national celebration on Monday 4th June 2012. We have been commanded by Bruno Peek OBE MVO OPR, Pageantmaster of The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Beacons to light the beacon on the Mount at 10.15 pm. Sue Westmacott and Peter Johnson will light the beacon. Following this there will be a firework display which has been funded by the Joint Parish Council.

Residents are invited to assemble at three forming-up points, Brook End Drive Green, Cherry Orchard Green and Meadow Road/Arden Road by 9 pm. People from other parts of the town may join any of the processions at any point. The three processions will converge at the base of The Mount on Beaudesert Lane. At this point, there will be a stall selling torches. Torches may also be purchased at the Crowning of the Jubilee Queen event in the Guild Hall Gardens on the preceding afternoon (Saturday). Mulled wine will be available on the Mount.

Mr Oliver Muntz of Umberslade Children's Farm has kindly loaned a trailer to the Henley-in-Arden Royal British Legion and Mr James Steele will drive the tractor so that people who are unable to climb the Mount will be able to enjoy the Beacon & Firewoks.

The Henley Royal British Legion encourages all residents to join with us in this national celebration on the occasion of our hardworking Queen's Diamond Jubilee.

Dennis Cox - Chairman Henley & District Royal British Legion

50s Jubilee Dance begins the Celebrations

image

imageSaturday 26th saw the beginning of Henley's Jubilee celebrations with a Dance at the Memorial Hall. A good crowd attended including some in 50s dress and many others in red ,white and blue.

The Likely Lads, who have not been to Henley for some time, were as excellent as we remembered them, albeit a little older.They played hits from the late 50s and 60s and included some old favourites like the St Bernard's Waltz and Valetta. There was something for everybody. The Henley Choir, most of those attending, led by Les Long gave a wonderful rendition of Land of Hope and Glory, You'll Never Walk Alone and Sailing! We finished the evening in a very traditional way with God Save the Queen.


Sue Dalby made a wonderful buffet supper with Coronation Chicken, quiches and salads followed by strawberry cheesecake. Nobody went hungry. The Hall was decorated with bunting reminiscent of a traditional street party and set the Jubillee scene.

The whole event was sponsored by Mr & Mrs David Archer, Arnold & Bainbridge, Cullingworth & Co, Crown Cleaning Services, ENV, Johnsons, Merrydays Montessori and Trine Developements and the Memorial Hall Committee would like to thank them. With their help we raised over £1,000.00 for the Hall.

Thanks and congratulations to Marijana, Duncan and all their team for putting on a great evening for all the “oldies” of Henley to reminisce and try to recapture their youth. We were all well entertained by a great band and fed exceptionally well by Sue Dalby and her staff. The whole evening was a great success and we hope a great deal of money was made in support of the Memorial Hall.

We are looking forward to the next great event.

Henley in Bloom - Planting at the Market Cross

image

Hunters at 66 High Street were amongst the first of many commercial establishments in the High Street to decorate their office in celebration of the forthcoming Jubilee Celebrations. New flower tubs, planted naturally with red, white and blue compliment our cheerful bunting! The office is decorated inside also to match the occasion.

"If you are looking for a right Royal welcome, whether you want to buy or sell, let or rent we look forward to welcoming you to our Palace", writes Megan Gregory of Hunters.

Many of the other commercial premises are also putting up decorations.
