Working for Wye - past, present and future

Wye Celebrates

Diamond Jubilee Street Party, Church Street, Wye 4th June 2012

Wye will celebrate The Queen's Platinum Jubilee over the extended bank holiday, from Thursday 2nd to Sunday 5th June 2022.

Wye Crown has had a fresh coat of lime wash, and every household in the parish of Wye with Hinxhill will be invited to take part in the celebrations. Invitation cards and a programme of events will go out by post and by hand during the week starting 23rd May.

In summary, Wye Celebrates will start with a beacon lighting ceremony on Churchfield Green on Thursday 2nd June from 21.00. On Friday 3rd June Church Street will be closed to traffic for a Street Party between 12.00 noon and 14.00. On Saturday 4th June, the Farmers Jubilee Market will be held on The Green. Celebrations to mark this historic occasion will end in Wye church with a special Jubilee Service of Thanksgiving on Sunday 5th June.

All four events are informal, but residents are being asked to wear red white and blue as this will add to the spectacle of each event.

Wye's beacon is part of the national chain that will all light together at 21.45 as a symbol of unity.

In the autumn a tree planting project will contribute to the Queen's Green Canopy initiative and grow to form a permanent legacy.

  • If you would like to volunteer to be part of this project, or can offer ideas or resources, please contact the Parish Clerk.
