Default Jubilee Celebrations

Just wondering what folk are doing to celebrate the Queen's jubilee?

Personally I'm not really bothered about it but we are getting both Thursday and Friday off so am planning to go out for a good long walk on Friday with friends.

For those who are making it a celebration what are you doing? Friends round, street party, BBQ?
Whatever it is you do to celebrate the jubilee I hope the sun shines and that you have a brilliant day

Nae worries, my pleasure and I don't disagree but let's not turn this into a royalist/non royalist thread.
I'm genuinely interested in what people are doing, my 5 year old granddaughter is very excited about it which was lovely to see - even if I don't share her enthusiasm

Cool

Banana is starring in the Platinum Jubilee Parade in Newquay on Saturday, I’m tagging along to take some photos, and on Sunday we have a large street party.

I intend on putting some bunting up, as I live on my own that will be about it.

Been aiming to attend the Trooping the Colour, which is a fabulous spectacle and an opportunity to view Her Majesty and her family. Setting any gripes apart we may not see the likes of it on such a grand scale again, and after inevitable changes, there may not be such a draw to tourism which undoubtedly brings in cash to the Country..
For years I have aimed to be in a specific place to witness this annual event, ideal for what I want to see, but yesterday I saw on TV that they have erected stands on my spot. I will enjoy the day and reflect on what I consider my luck to have witnessed in the past, and soak in the atmosphere of the occasion; so many people there for one happy reason, leaving their bickering and opinions elsewhere.
Then to instal a new exhaust system over the weekend, I hope.

As we have only been in our house less then a year, we see the celebration/street party as a way of meeting the other villagers and so our thoughts on the Royal Family.
There is a band playing in the evening on a neighbours front garden and then the following day there is the annual fate at another neighbours house, this I really am looking forward to, meeting the owners and their daughter.

We are not overly demonstrative but I might just raise a glass of Glen Something- Or-Other. Sitting, of course.

70 years without fault and in the face of occasionally a lurid press is rather impressive. Oh, and without compare anywhere else in the world. Cheers!
