As you all know, we are fundraising towards the costs associated with building the skate park in Rendlesham. Easton Farm Park have very kindly donated a family ticket to be used as a raffle prize to help aid the fundraising pot. The pass will allow 2 adults and 2 children entry to the farm. Visit the skatepark stand to enter. 

There is a long tradition of celebrating Royal Jubilees, Weddings and Coronations with the lighting of Beacons, a symbol of unity. Rendlesham will have its very own oak Beacon erected in Jubilee Park to commemorate this momentous milestone in history! This will be lit at 9.45pm by Rendlesham’s very own Sir Michael Bunbury, Deputy Lieutenant of Suffolk and appointed a Knight Commander of the Royal Victorian Order by H M The Queen. 

To go celebrate this unique Royal Occasion and to go out with a bang we have arranged a fireworks display by Fully Fused which will be fit for the Queen!

We will be giving special Platinum Jubilee Mugs for our younger Rendlesham Residents. Please register your child’s details by sending over each child’s name, age and address to Events@RendleshamPC.org.uk . They will be available for collection at the Purple Reign Festival! Adults won't miss out though as mugs will be available for purchase too with all proceeds going towards the costs for the skate park.
