The working group organising the Porthleven Diamond Jubilee Picnic in the Park have just launched a Facebook page to keep the residents of Porthleven informed on the progress and list of activities and events to take place at this event. The Facebook page can be found HERE.
The event will be held on the 5th June, starting at 12 noon, and finishes at 5pm. To make the event extra-special, the working group wants people to take part, or supply a few pictures to put on display. These are:
- WANTED: Teams of 5 people for a Tug of War competition at 15:00 (adult & child categories). Who are the strongest group of people in Porthleven? Harbour Inn staff/drinkers? Gig team? Surfers? Footballers? Please call Annette or Darren on 01326 561121 to register your team. Which pub/club will add the coveted Diamond Jubilee Tug of War trophy to their shelf?
- WANTED: cakes! There’ll be a cake decorating competition for adults & children so let your imagination & creativity run wild & get baking over the weekend. Why not get your kids to decorate a cake on Bank Holiday Monday & bring along their creation? The theme is ‘Red, White & Blue’.
- WANTED: photos of events held in Porthleven over the years. We’re having an exhibition called ‘Porthleven Celebrations Through The Ages’ in a marquee & we need old photos that you have tucked away of past celebrations held in the village. Demelza at Porthleven Holiday Cottages is coordinating & if you take your photos to her on the Harbour Head she’ll scan them & give them back to you.
This event is open to everyone so please spread the word & let’s make it a Jubilee event to remember! If you want to dress up in red, white & blue then please do. If you don’t want to bring a picnic, there will be food on sale by the Horse and Jockey pasty shop and a BBQ by the Fisherman’s Association. A small bar will be provided too.
The full range of activities will be published near the time, but so far it includes bands, entertainment, cake and crown making competitions, games and sports, bouncy castle to name but a few.
Leading up to the event, the Mayor and Deputy Mayor of Porthleven will be presenting a mug to all the primary school children who attend Porthleven School, or who live in Porthleven, but attend another primary school.
I hope you see you all there!
