Village celebrations on the first weekend in June 2012this marking the 60th anniversary of the reign of Queen Elizabeth II. Well, the weather held (just) and the torrential rain had ceased by the time that Chesterton held its Jubilee celebrations at Hill Farm. A really good turn out of people and plenty of Union Jacks on display. A nice relaxed evening on food, wine and fellowship ended off with a beacon being lit on the top of Ivens Hill, where the Romans would have lit identical beacons 1700 years ago. This was one of many beacons lit that evening over the length of the UK. As you will see from below there was even an Olympic torch on show.....
