Plans to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in the seaside village of Saundersfoot have been unveiled.
Saundersfoot Community Council have been collaborating with Saundersfoot Chamber for Tourism, along with the Saundersfoot Harbour Commission to provide a community celebration to mark the occasion in June.
At this month’s meeting of the Community Council, Clr. Phil Baker reported that the Chamber for Tourism with permission of the Harbour Commission are suggesting having a village street party picnic on the harbour decking on Saturday, June 4 (date to be confirmed) from 2 until 5 pm, with villagers bringing their own chairs and picnic, and music to be provided by local musicians or recordings, and a toast to Her Majesty at 3 pm.
Clr. Baker said that the Chamber for Tourism are happy to decorate the area with 1000m of bunting and 12 Union flags purchased by the Community Council and with the help of the Saundersfoot Connect, spread the word to the community to come along to the harbour, bring a picnic and enjoy the day.
The Chamber for Tourism are also happy to facilitate a best dressed window display for the village and even a best ‘vintage’ outfit for those coming along on the day to the decking with prizes being purchased from the precept budget.
Local music ‘buskers’ will be encourage to sing at the event and the Harbour Commission are happy to play music from the 1950s through to 2022 from the schooner to create a party like atmosphere.
Clr. Sue Boughton Thomas proposed that the Community Council support this event and purchase the items, as requested, with monies being used from the prearranged budget for such (£1,000).
Clr. Dean Ludlow seconded the proposal with all councillors in full agreement.
