Channels Residents Community Group is proud to be part of The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Beacons and Associated Activities and has announced plans to light a Beacon for The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee on the evening of Thursday, June 2nd, 2022.
The Beacon is one of thousands being lit in the UK and the Commonwealth, and forms part of the official programme announced by Buckingham Palace for the Jubilee Weekend. The Beacon will be lit at Channels Park, and it will be one of over 2,022 lit by charities, communities and faith groups all over the UK.
In addition, beacons will be lit in all 54 Commonwealth capitals and the Principal Beacon lighting will take place in a special ceremony at Buckingham Palace on Thursday evening. This will take the form of a lighting installation with The Queen’s Green Canopy ‘Tree of Trees’ sculpture and projections onto the front of Buckingham Palace. This innovative new way of taking part in the beacon lighting will reflect the Royal Family’s long history championing environmental causes.
We will be opening the weekend of Jubilee celebrations with the Beacon Lighting Ceremony and the evening will include a Jubilee Raffle, a Cake Decorating Competition, a family Jubilee Trail, some craft activities for children and everyone singing ‘A Life Filled with Grace’ as the beacon is lit.
Over the next two weeks, we will post more detail and reminders about the evening so keep an eye out for updates via the CRCG website, Facebook & Twitter! 🙂
For now, and if you are a Channels Resident, you can buy your Jubilee Raffle tickets online in advance and there are some great prizes to be won!
