THERE will be a special service in Holy Cross Church at 6pm on Sunday, June 5, to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee and the Queen’s long and dedicated service to the nation. Everyone is warmly invited to attend.

Earlier in the day on Sunday, June 5, at around 10.45am, there will be a short ceremony in the churchyard near the West Gate to dedicate a rowan tree which has been planted to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee and in memory of Penny Little, a sadly missed chorister who died in 2021.

During the Covid pandemic, Penny could often be found sitting on the granite seat in the churchyard each morning.

The tree forms part of the Queen’s Green Canopy, a unique tree planting initiative created to mark Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee in 2022 which invites people from across the United Kingdom to “Plant a Tree for the Jubilee”.

Everyone is encouraged to play their part to enhance and sustain our environment by planting trees throughout the Jubilee year.


Children and families are also invited to go into the church during the Jubilee Weekend to follow an interactive children’s trail.

Bright and bold, this colourful trail introduces those who take part to Connie the Corgi and her seven postcards.

Each postcard features a fact about the Queen, an activity and Bible verse.

The Trail is designed for all ages, older children can collect the fun royal facts, while younger children can explore the illustrations and activities.

To accompany Connie the Corgi’s Postcard Trail, there are two activity sheets.

One is designed for primary-aged children and the other is suitable for younger preschoolers.

As children walk around the Trail, these activity sheets invite them to engage with each station by answering simple questions.  Go along and join in the fun!
