    Default Queen's Platinum Jubilee

    Are there any plans for the Queen's Jubilee in Coventry, Warwickshire & Solihull?

    Round my way, a picnic's being planned alongside the local beacon being lit, plus a street party - both over the Bank Holiday weekend

    I'm not aware of any, other than the extended bank holiday. I fondly remember the jubilee celebrations of 1977, especially the group of girls I spent the night with in Earlsdon.
    Of course it'll fit, you just need a bigger hammer.

    Watching recent events, I'm not so sure The Queen is actually going to make this.

    My local has hoisted a 'Jubilee' flag. That really seems to be the limit round here.

    That's a shame, Rebbonk.

    That looks quite interesting. I wasn't aware of this at all.

    I think I'll give it a miss, Lex.

    I hope the local pub is better supplied for next weekend, I'm told they ran dry of some drinks earlier today.

    The Beacons were a huge draw. My local do was a big success: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-61681296

    I have seen and heard nothing, apart from the local church hall opening extra hours on Friday for its usual Cafe run.
