Village Jubilee plans

Boston Spa is gearing up for a Jubiliee year.

The village has joined with neighbouring Thorner and Collingham to mark the Queen’s 60-year reign on the throne this summer.

Organisersannounced this week that planned events come as early as May with a children’s art competition, with winners displayed in the village hall.

On June 4 there will be a village picnic at Riverside Meadow including jazz band, hog road, face painting, Punch and Judy Show and finishing with fireworks.

Other attractions include the Yorkshire Film Archive who will be showing 60 years in the county on May 24 and a Jazz night on June 2.
