70 years ago today, on February 6th, 1952, Princess Elizabeth officially became monarch at the age of 25 years, after the death of her Father George VI.
The Platinum Jubilee marks 70 years of the Queen’s reign. Queen Elizabeth is the first British monarch to mark this accolade, after being crowned in June 1953 at Westminster Abbey.
In January, all the Children from the three schools in West Moors, painted rocks that the Town Council provided, in their own chosen design, to pay tribute to this momentous occasion. The finished products are delightfully colourful and creative.
On Wednesday 2nd February, Cllrs and staff used the 550 rocks to create a display on the Petwyn showing the historic milestone dating 1952 – 2022.
A big Thank You to the Schools for their participation and a Thank you to everyone in advance for respecting the rock display.
In June the Council will also be providing party packs to the residents of the local care homes, so they are able to celebrate between the 2nd and 5th June, despite not being at home or out with their loved ones.
