Bringing out lots and lots of bunting
1:00pm Friday 25th May 2012 in News
HUNDREDS of children have been working to ensure Bicester shines red, white and blue to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
More than 1,700 children from 15 nurseries, pre-schools and primaries spent months creating 800 metres of patriotic bunting.
It is being put up at Wyevale Garden Centre, off Oxford Road, where a huge street party is planned on Sunday, June 3, from 12.30pm. The bunting, which has been marked with each child’s name and school, will also be used to decorate Sheep Street when the Olympic Torch passes through the town on Monday, July 9.
Organiser Trudi Lee, pictured above with children from Bure Park and Langford Village primary schools, said: “It looks amazing. l conceived this idea to enable younger children to make their own memento of the Jubilee.” Picture: David Fleming
