Dear Residents of Salehurst and Robertsbridge
We warmly invite you and your family and friends to join in the local celebrations for the Queen's Platinum Jubilee Weekend. There are a number of events planned in the village from Thursday 2nd to Sunday 5th June 2022. Our main community event 'Robertsbridge Celebrates' will take place on Saturday 4th June in Station Road. This event is a free event organised by a group of volunteers on behalf of the Parish Council for everyone in the village and is supported by the Parish Council, Darvell Bruderhof Community, Robertsbridge Arts Partnership and Rother District Council. We have been granted a road closure from the Village Hall to the High Street on Saturday afternoon, so we have taken the opportunity to plan an amazing variety of activities from magic and live music to cream teas, market, food and drinks stalls, football games, classic cars, trains, a fire engine and ponies.
No ticket is required, just come along, bring your deckchair, a sunhat, and join in the celebrations which will proceed come rain or shine!!! We encourage you to walk to Station Road. Disabled parking will be available at the Station Road Car Park next to Robertsbridge Club; if you need a lift to Station Road please contact Helping Hands on 07726 592739.
Our heartfelt thanks to everyone who has contributed to planning the event. If you are able to help on the day for an hour or more please get in touch with Dawn at Robertsbridge Village Stores. (Or perhaps you would like to help ahead of the event - on Sunday 29th May a Bunting Workshop is being held for the children in the village 2-4pm at the Church Mission Room on Fair Lane - all children are warmly invited to come along to help make bunting to decorate the village for Jubilee Weekend). We very much want the community event to be a family-friendly day so the event will end with a family disco at the Village Hall for children and their parents from 5-7pm organised by Salehurst School Association. There will be a small charge for each child payable at the door.
We look forward to seeing you all at local events over the Jubilee weekend, including our very own 'Robertsbridge Celebrates!'
