Keevil village events for the Coronation Weekend when I’m sure you will agree, there is something for everyone. Check back here regularly for updates or make sure you are signed up to Buzz by following the link on the home page.
The Parish Council are considering whether the village would like a lasting commemorative item to celebrate and remember the Coronation for many years to come. One idea is to build an arbor around the WI commemorative bench on the Banfield Recreation Ground, and grow climbing plants up and around it… please send any ideas, suggestions or comments to Alex, Geoff or Sarah who will bring them to the next PC meeting in May.
Friday, 5 May
Pub Night at The George
To kick off this historic weekend, our village hall will once again be transformed into our familiar pop-up hostelry, The George from 7.00pm – 11.00pm on Friday, 5 May. As you know, these are family-friendly, drop-in evenings. So just turn up, relax and enjoy your chosen tipple in good company.
Saturday, 6 May 3.30pm
Street Party around the village hall
Keevil WI are planning a street party which will take place from 3.30pm on Saturday, 6 May in Institute Road (at the side of the Village Hall). This is a community celebration and, therefore, all are welcome. Early plans include a children’s entertainer as well as a bountiful supply of sandwiches, jelly and cake! Coronation events will be live-streamed throughout the afternoon on the screen in the village hall, so you won’t miss a thing!
Sunday, 7 May
