Broadstone fly flags for Jubilee


As the country marks 70 years of Queen Elizabeth II, we were thrilled to see volunteers decking our flagpoles with union flags and traders decorating shop windows with red, white and blue.

A special thank goes to the team of volunteers who put the flags up. 

A number of streets in Broadstone are being closed for street parties and community groups are holding events throughout the area.  The three towns of Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole will be lighting beacons alongside towns and cities across the country, and extra buses are being laid on to Sandbanks for visitors to use to watch this and the fireworks that will follow.  

There was some discussion about moving the Funday to the Jubilee weekend but with the volunteers involved with other events and half term seeing so many people take a family holiday after such a difficult couple of years, it was decided to retain Broadstone’s Fun Day in its traditional slot of 3rd July. We will be featuring a Jubilee Themed Fancy Dress Competition and hope that funds raised will pay for a lasting Jubilee legacy at Broadstone Recreation Ground. Whatever you do this weekend we hope you have a lovely time!
