The Queen's Platinum Jubilee Celebration





The newly elected Town Mayor for 2022-2023, Councillor Marianne Burke-Thompson and her Consort Liz Burke, attended a number of events during the Jubilee week which had been facilitated by Whiston Town Council.  Each of the Community Centres had been decorated, as you can see from the photographs below.  Older photographs of the Queen throughout her reign, were on display.

The group also celebrated their 31st year anniversary to coincide with the Queens Platinum Jubilee Party.  The event was well attended and the Town Mayor and Consort chatted with some of the members. Whiston Town Council provided Jubilee cupcakes for everyone to enjoy.

Luncheon Club - Lickers Lane Community Centre, Lickers Lane, Whiston

The Town Mayor, Consort and Town Clerk were invited to a delicious roast dinner that had been prepared by the volunteers, who cook a hot meal for the over 55's every week.  The volunteers work extremely hard and this is sincerely appreciated by everyone.  Again, each of the ladies and gentlemen, who attended the lunch, were given a Jubilee cupcake provided by Whiston Town Council.

The teacher, Kate, had arranged a little afternoon party to mark the Queen's Platinum Jubilee, for the children in the dance school.  The Town Mayor attended and enjoyed watching the children perform.  She chatted with the children and again, provided Jubilee cupcakes to those present.

The Town Mayor would like to thank all those groups who had made both her and her Consort feel extremely welcome, and assured each of the community groups of Whiston Town Council's continued support.
