A NEW charity in Clanfield has vowed the Jubilee weekend celebrations in the village will be the first of many future community events for residents to enjoy.

Colouring Clanfield was formed by like-minded residents who wanted to make sure the village marked the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations on June 2 and 3 at South Lane Meadow.

Joanne Barr, of the group, said: ‘Clanfield is quite a big village but we don’t have much in terms of community events anymore.

‘There used to be a carnival and a parade and we would like to re-instate that kind of thing.

‘But we thought we’d start off in style with a fantastic two-day event to celebrate the Queen’s Jubilee.’

The packed entertainment programme includes a six-a-side cricket tournament, a beer festival, a hog roast and live music from 10am on Saturday, June 2.

On the Sunday there will be a fancy dress parade from midday, followed by a children’s street party at 1pm, a tug-of-war and children’s games from 2pm, more live music and a firework finale at 10.30pm.
