‘Come and join the Diamond Jubilee party’


B


usinesses in Abbots Langley are joining forces with the parish council for a


pavement party to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee on Bank Holiday Monday. Lynn Luck, who owns Over the Moon in the


High Street, said she decided to get the ball rolling after speaking to her customers. She revealed: ―It‘s our customers‘ idea. They


came in and said: ‗Does anyone know what‘s happening for the Jubilee? Is the village organising anything?‘ ―We heard this repeatedly so in the end we


decided that we would organise a party. Being from Abbots Langley we felt it was important that something happened.‖ Lynn said she is working with Pat Waterton at


Langley Travel and Brian Hibberd who was the ex-chair of the community centre to arrange the event.


‘In the end we decided that we would organise a party. Being from Abbots Langley we felt it was important’


She told My Abbots News what will be


happening on the day. Lynn said: ―We‘ll be having live music by


Freaky Dukes, a young local band who were recommended to us and pretty much everyone has volunteered their assistance. ―Then we‘re having the Royal Jubilee portrait


unveiled in the Henderson Hall. It‘s one of a limited number of photographs of the official Royal Portrait from Buckingham Palace. We hope that Keith Williams, chairman of Abbots


Brian Hibberd, “Her Majesty” Pat Waterton and Lynn Luck.


Langley Parish Council will unveil it.‖ There will also be a prize for the best crown


which is open to boys and girls aged 11 and under. Lynn said she is delighted at the support


shown by companies in the village for the idea. She explained: ―The parish council has given


us a grant towards the entertainment costs which has been very handy. Also the Henderson Hall is being made available to us through the managing trustees and the parish council. Lots of other companies are providing goodie bags, groceries and other provisions if they haven‘t felt able to make a financial contribution, they‘re doing something else to help.‖ The party is being held from 3pm to 5pm on


Monday, June 4, in Abbots Langley High Street. All are welcome to attend.
