Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Fair at Queen Elizabeth Park Stoughton

June 28, 2022| Past Issues, Uncategorized

Friday 3rd June, 12.00-5.00pm

Nearly 20 years ago now, the first residents started moving in to the new Queen Elizabeth Park estate in Stoughton. This estate was built on the site of the former Women’s Royal Army Corps barracks. As many will know, Queen Elizabeth II, then a teenage Princess, served in World War 2 as a driver and mechanic in the Auxiliary Territorial Service and worked at the Stoughton site.

So residents of Queen Elizabeth Park thought it was only right that we should commemorate the Queen’s 70th anniversary of acceding to the throne – her Platinum Jubilee. She is the first British monarch who has ever reigned for this long.

On Friday, 3rd June (Friday of the long Jubilee bank holiday weekend – 2nd to 5th June) Q E Park is holding a Community Fair, from 12 noon to 5 pm, to be held on our main Green, at Railton Road, GU2 9LX. We hope to feature: live music, bouncy castles, ice creams, cream teas, children’s fancy dress competition, a dog agility event, tombola, raffle, face painting, a baking contest and many other items. Bring a folding chair or a rug, and stay for the afternoon!

It will be free to attend, though there will be charges for some attractions. Any profit from the day will be donated to charity. Plenty of free parking around the event.

Local businesses can get involved by: sponsoring the event; taking advertising in our programme; donating raffle or other prizes. If interested please email: social@qepark.co.uk

More details will be published closer to the time, on our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/QEParkGuildford and via leaflets and posters.
