In 2012, the nation celebrates the Diamond Jubilee - 60 years of our Queen's reign.  Nassington is holding a 'Party in the Park' - bring your own picnic, or buy a cream tea or a burger, join in the games and party the night away to a mega disco and live music

Sunday June 3rd
The afternoon is starting with a fly past by WWII Lancaster Bomber - currently scheduled for about 2.40pm (Timings are beyond our control!)
There will be team games, (names drawn from hats) comprising KwikCricket and rounders, finishing off with a Tug of War (unless the grass is very wet) and there will be 5-aside available too.

The sports are sponsored by FIelds-in-Trust in conjunction with Asda to celebrate the dedication of the playing field as a Queen Elizabeth II playing field.  You may recall the parish council's intentions to have the playing field protected in perpetuity as recreation space for Nassington - this process is almost complete and these games celebrate ensuring the protection of one of the village's most treasured assets.

Volunteer umpires needed - please get in touch if you can help referee 

A contingent from the Yarwell and Nassington Britannia Band will be playing a short set for us and Dave the Clown will be entertaining the younger revellers from about 4pm. 

Fiona Cumberpatch is manning the exhibition tent with keepsakes, curios and memories from the coronation, the first diamond jubilee and through the years, as well as some of the children's work. 

You may bring a gazebo to shelter from the hot sun (or on the off chance it may rain!!!) but please make sure that these are kept to the perimeter of the field so that people have a clear line of sight to their children / friends / games / band and of course the plane.  The area for the games will be out of bounds for picnicking too until after the games too, for safety reasons.  There will be some space inside the marquee for picnicking, but space will be limited

We have hired a few loos and would ask that theses are kept for the use of the ladies and children - there are plenty of facilities for chaps in the pavilion, but only one for women.  These loos are designed to deal with most wastage, including sanitary products, but NOT NAPPIES.

There will be a BBQ from about 6pm onwards, with burgers and hotdogs for  sale at modest prices, courtesy of Nassington Cubs and Scouts.  There will also be cakes and cocktails for sale, again at not-to-missed prices from the Twinning Committee.

It is anticipated that the disco will start at around 6pm, with music that some of our smaller party fanatics will enjoy, with the evening progressing to cover all sorts of exciting musical treats from the past 60 years

Dress Code - Dress to impress!  Anything you'd like from the last 60 years or a traditional red white and blue ensemble.

VOLUNTEERS needed - if you could spare some time on Saturday afternoon to help erect the smaller tents or help with the bunting, it would be very much appreciated.  Howerver, if you are busy with your own bunting, that's good too!!
 Here's an idea of where everything will be (not to scale!)
