Patriotic costumes and decorations will need to be dusted off ready for a day of celebration to mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee on Sunday, June 3rd 2012.
The Diggle Community Association have, in collaboration with Kiln Green Church, Diggle Band Club, Diggle Band and Diggle Primary School, organised a fun packed event to mark this special occasion.
The event will start at 1.30pm, at the Hanging Gate car park, with a procession through the village led by Diggle B Band and the Rev. Duncan Rhodes. Residents, youth organisations and children from Diggle Primary School will accompany the band on its march to Diggle Band Club where there will be a fancy dress competition. Children and adults will be competing for prizes, creating costumes themed around kings and queens in red , white and blue. The Rev Duncan Rhodes said, “Prizes will be given for the best looking costumes, family, pram, dog and any other category that we can think of.”
At Diggle Band Club visitors will be treated to live performances by Diggle’s Brass Bands, The 99s, Kieran McMahon and Bright Sparks and the grounds of the Band Club will be awash with a variety of fun packed stalls, a bar, a bouncy castle and a barbecue. All money raised on the day will be split between the groups involved in the event.
Stuart Coleman, DCA chairman said, “There is a lot going on over this weekend with the Band Contest and we thought it would be a great way to round things off. We are also very pleased that we can get together to celebrate this special day and that we are able to raise some money for the fantastic groups we have in Diggle.”
The procession will leave the Hanging Gate car park, at 1.30pm and follow a route along Huddersfield Road.
