Jubilee Event at Scouts Corner
Bartonsham History Group will be looking at Historical Street Parties in the area, including the gathering for the original Coronation event in 1953, which we hope to recreate for the platinum Jubilee. Maybe you or someone you know is in these photos?
Visit our Pop Up Stall, to look at the pictures and other memorabilia, listen to the Fire Choir singing and enjoy some Tea and Cakes to raise some funds for the Ukraine appeal. Take your own snaps in our themed Picture Booth, and bring your family, to be a part of our Community Photo for this special occasion.'

On the 2nd of June 1953 the local community of Bartonsham celebrated the coronation of Queen Elizabeth with street parties, and posed for this group photo at Scout Corner. We know that some of the younger people in the picture, now grown up, are still here.
Sixty nine years later at the platinum anniversary this June, its possible there maybe more celebrations with community parties, and Bartonsham history group are hoping to to recreate this community group picture, with the current community.
Do you remember it? Maybe you are a relative of someone in the picture, or a new family in the neighbourhood. Which ever, we would love you to be involved in recreating a new version of this group photo for this years anniversary.
If you are interested please email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org, to give us an idea of numbers and people keen to get involved. Is anyone organising a street party? let us know.
To keep up to date with possible options keep checking Bartonsham History on facebook and let us know your thoughts.
