Platinum Jubilee Events at Readymoney

Victoria Clark

Over recent months I have been working with a team from across Fowey to help plan a weekend of brilliant community events to celebrate the Queen's Platinum Jubilee. Events are being focussed in different areas of Fowey on different days and on Saturday 4th June, the focus is on Readymoney for the Big Jubilee Sandcastle Competition and Big Jubilee Swim and Lunch. Read on for more information about each or for more up to date information as we get closer to the time, head to the Facebook events for the sandcastle competition here and for the Swim & Lunch here.

The Big Jubilee Swim & Lunch

🔻 🔻 🔻  The perfect opportunity to bring our community together to celebrate the Queen's Platinum Jubilee Weekend.🔻🔻🔻
🏊‍♂️ If you would like to join in with a swim (or indeed just a quick dip) beforehand, we will be heading into the water from 11.30 with a view to eating from 12 noon.
🏰 Big Lunch HQ will be the grassed area on top of the Readymoney limekilns. We are hoping to have a gazebo and trestle table, lots of bunting and hopefully some fun games on the beach to bring everyone together. More information to follow over coming weeks...
🎂 In order to keep things safe and simple we would encourage everyone to bring their own food, drinks, cups, cutlery, plates and picnic blankets - this also requires little advance preparation for the organising team and minimises waste! If you do prepare food to share, please where possible make food in individual portions, like cupcakes and sausage rolls or easily sliceable cakes or quiche and bring an ingredients list with you.
♻️ Please take all your waste home with you at the end of the day to be recycled as appropriate
🚗 Please try to avoid driving down to the Cove where possible. There is no parking and turning around can be difficult when there are lots of people around including children and dogs.
🐶 Dogs are welcome but please do keep them away from the food!
