A JUBILEE street party and fayre at Horwich Parish CE Primary School had two special guests. Horwich mayor Steven Chadwick and the town’s mayoress Sue Denton, pictured, enjoyed the celebrations. The event was organised and run by the school PTA as part of their fundraising for a sheltered bike canopy so children can bring their bikes and scooters to school and leave them safely on the premises. PEOPLE of all ages came together acrossAdlingtontomarktheQueen’s 70 years of service to the nation. The platinum jubilee trail which took place across the district was a joint initiative between Adlington Town Council, Anderton Parish Council and Heath Charnock Parish Council. Other community events were organised by St Joseph’s Scouts, Beavers and Cubs and Adlington Guides, Brownies and Rainbows, who enjoyed a picnic and games. AAs well as family events and afternoon teas, the celebrations also included a gath- ering of the Friends Together Group and Fairview Youth and Community Centre. A spokesperson for Adlington Town Council said: “We would like to say thank you to all those who organised the events and all those who helped sponsored or volun- teered at the proceedings, too many to mention individually.” Creative ways to celebrate A £10,000 funding award for Blackrod Sports and Commu- nity Centre helped to ensure creativity played an important role in The Queen’s platinum jubilee celebrations. The centre received the cash from the Let’s Create Jubilee Fund, gifted by Forever Manches- ter on behalf of the Arts Council. Some of the funding went towards commissioning an artist to work with schoolchildren, elderly people and people suffering with dementia to help them create artwork that shows how the UK and Blackrod have changed since the coronation. The funding was made possible by National Lottery cash. Black- rod Sports and Community Centre was one of just over 700 voluntary and community organisations that received £4.58m in total.
