“At lunchtime 12 children from each of the five infant junior local schools will sit at top tables throughout the town and lunch with us.”

At 4pm a Jubilee Parade will take place led by local dignitaries, the Jubilee Queen and local service people, local children. It will wend along the Seafront, into Victoria Street and return to the High Street where competition winners will be announced and prizes presented by the Jubilee Queen.”
