Community Celebrates The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee

Over the weekend 4th-5th June, three events were organized to mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, bringing members of our community, family and friends together at the Village Hall.

On the Saturday we held an Afternoon Tea and Live Stream of the Epsom Derby, the sandwiches were fantastic, the cakes were magnificent, and the complementary prosecco flowed

In the evening we live streamed the Jubilee Concert from Buckingham Place, which saw people singing along to George Ezra’s “Shotgun” and being spellbound by the Queen’s sketch with Paddington Bear.  The bar was provided by our friends at Woodcote Brewery.

To end the festivities, on the Sunday, there was the traditional Platinum Jubilee Party with games, a quiz and the live streaming of the Jubilee Pageant.  People left with a complementary bottle of beer.

A HUGE THANK YOU to everyone that came to our celebratory events and decked properties Red, White & Blue to help celebrate this historic event.

Another HUGE THANK YOU to all the volunteers who organized the weekend events, organized the scavenger hunt, made the sandwiches, baked cakes. washed up, the list goes on.  Without YOU the events would not have happened and being a success that will be remembered for many years to come.

If you have any photographs of our community festivities, email them to admin@fvca.org.uk for archiving. If you have any information regarding who is in the photograph please share in your email.

In years to come people will be very grateful for your photographs, which will bring back many happy memories and will also be a reminder of who lived in our community.

For photos of our Afternoon Tea visit our Pictorial History page

Recording History

We invite households to send a photo of themselves, preferably of them outside their house, recording who was living in the village at the time of the jubilee. 

The photographs will be incorporated into a montage, which we hope will be put on display at the Village Hall, and digital copy held in archive.  Residents may wish to provide some background information, such as names & any other information relating to the history of the property. 

Email photograph, address & any additional information to admin@fvca.org.uk  Addresses will not be shared, this will be to verify that you live in our community.  We ask for your consent that addresses can be held in archive for future historical reference.

A Bottle of Water for our Plants

If anyone is walking past the village planters, could they take a bottle of water and pour over/around the plants please.

Let’s keep our village display alive.

20 mph Advisory Signs Warning Lights Update

We have received an update from County Cllr Webb. Highways have raised an order to supply and fit new GPRS timers and aerials to both school flashing warning signs.

After over a year, it looks like we may be having working warning lights again.

Is there a footpath that needs improving?

We are on a mission to improve the state of footpaths that are alongside the roads across Fairfield, Wildmoor & Stoneybridge and we need your help to identify pavements that need repairing or have become difficult to use.

Unfortunately, we do not have the power to make the required improvements, but we will certainly lobby Worcestershire County Council.

You can report pavements that need attention by emailing  admin@fvca.org.uk or pop along to a Social Gathering, 1st Wednesday of each month at the Village Hall, 10am – 12noon.
