Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II – Platinum Jubilee 2022

Between 2nd and 5th June, St Giles’ Church will celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. Please see the timetable of events below.

On Sunday, 29th May at 5.00pm, there will be a Service of Thanksgiving at St Giles’ to mark the Queen’s seventy years of loyal service to the country and the Commonwealth, a unique milestone, which probably will never be repeated in our Nation’s history.

A Jubilee Commemoration Book will be available to everyone to write any comments or sentiments that you may wish to record. The book will be available in church from Sunday, 29th May, to Sunday, 5th June
