A JUBILEE celebration to suit all ages will be held in Kirkbymoorside this Sunday, organised by the town council.

Kirkbymoorside Brass Band will play in the town centre and lead a parade around the town.

Town mayor Chris Dowie said there would be a fancy dress competition with a royal or Jubilee theme for children of all ages and entrants will be able to follow the brass band in the parade.

They have also invited shops to decorate their windows as part of the celebrations.

There’s also a children’s competition for the best portrait of the Queen and any materials can be used, such as paint, pastels, paper or fabric collage, with all the entries to be put on display in the Memorial Hall.

The hall is also going to be the venue for an arts and crafts fair with local artists and crafts people invited to have stalls.

Kirkbymoorside History Group is putting together a display in the Memorial Hall on June 3 linked to the Lubilee and members will also be launching their new book, Kirkbymoorside Proudly Presents...

Coun Dowie said: “The Sportsfield Association has kindly offered its field as a venue and we plan to have an afternoon of fun races for children and we would welcome more sporting ideas.

“The town council will provide cash prizes for the children’s competitions and a certificate for the winning decorated shop window.”

The Royal British Legion club will also be holding a party and fun day on June 3, featuring local band Starbox, and a Jubilee lunch is planned for Sunday, June 10 at the bowling club, organised by All Saints’ Church.
