In the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee year, we are also celebrating 60 years of the Rose Queen Fete in Blunham on Saturday 26th May. This is a traditional village event, held jointly between John Donne Lower School and St Edmunds or St James Parish Church. We hope as many former Rose Queens, and supporters of the school and the church, past and present, will join us on this very special day. The procession will start from Park Lane in Blunham at 2pm, followed by the crowning of the 2012 Rose Queen, a dancing display by the school children, and the opening of the fete. There will be many traditional stalls and attractions, such as the Pimms tent, cream teas, cakes, garden produce, together with modern attractions of a BBQ, bouncy castle, dig for pirate treasure and lob a loo roll! And for the gardeners amongst you – we will be holding a “Best Garden Rose” competition so be prepared…..
