- It is supported by: Sir Tim Rice, British Conductor Suzi Dibgy OBE, Military Wives Choirs, Popchoir, Voices Foundation and Project Get Singing, among others
- This year is a combination of ‘hub’ events nationwide and singing in the streets – tune in to local radio, download the words at doorstepcarols.co.uk and SING!
Jubilee Walkers – The rain and sun in the last couple of weeks has certainly brought on the crops and grasses! Sturdy walking shoes and long trousers are strongly recommended. You can do the walk in sections, so you can do as much or as little as you please. The weather report is wall to wall sunshine & 25C so sun hats and sun cream also strongly recommended, a bottle of water is a must! A decent pair of secateurs wouldn’t go amiss either! Binoculars if you want to make the most of the views. We are checking the route and will be at the Village Hall at 2:30 pm for an update/start of the walk, look forward to seeing you there.
