Her Majesty the Queen's Platinum Jubilee Celebration: Saturday 4th June 2022 (3pm - 10pm)
Thank you to everyone who joined us in celebrating Her Majesty the Queen's Platinum Jubilee on Butchers Stile.
It was great to see the field full of families, neighbours and new friends coming together to celebrate 70 years of Her Majesty's reign. The event allowed us to showcase local talent with live music from local musicians throughout the day, local businesses with their artisan products, and local community groups sharing awareness and fundraising.
We are very grateful to the National Lottery for their grant of £8300 towards the cost hiring the stage, marquees, toilets and technical support, all of which are the most significant cost in hosting this event.
Thank you to everyone who supported us with raffle donations including Experience Days (https://www.experiencedays.co.uk/charity-scheme); we are vey grateful for their kind donation.
All profits raised will be going to Davenham Royal British Legion Social Club to support community events and improve the community hub.
We would love to hear your feedback and what else you would like to see in Davenham too. Please see our Facbook page for more pictures of the event. Thank you everyone for your support, what a wonderful community we have!
