North Luffenham Jubilee Celebrations – Update

Things are now beginning to take their final shape for the coming celebrations. The Beacon, which will be lit on Thursday night at 9.45 at The Fox, is now completed and will be a credit to the Village both on that night and at future occasions. The Friday Fun Day preparations are now almost completed. This day promises to be such great fun with loads of activities for all age groups to join in with. The Dog Show looks to be a great hit but surely the highlight of the day with be the first North Luffenham Inter Street Tug O’ War! The trophy has been hand made and is a spectacular piece of work which will be displayed in The Fox with the winning street’s name proudly engraved on it through the whole year. Have you got your team together yet?? We would love this to be a real fun competition, and would encourage as many streets to get involved as possible. Even if you don’t have enough people from your street this year why not “borrow” some from other streets?! Saturday’s horseshoe hunt is now completed and will be available for all to join in throughout Saturday. Finally Sunday’s Street Party is also nearly finalised. What a day that will be. Make sure you come along and join in all the festive celebrations. This really will be a Jubilee to remember!

      Hi Gary
      Thank you for you question.
      The competition is being organised by the organising committee for the Jubilee Weekend celebrations. The Tug O’ War will be held on the Friday at The Oval during the village Fun Day. The competition will start at 3.00pm. These details are on several posters on boards around the village. Every house will shortly be receiving a full programme of events (currently at the printers) In there you will find an entry form for the Tug O’ War plus full rules for the competition. I have also printed these rules out now for your information.
