On behalf of all of the Platinum Jubilee Organisers can we say a very big thank you to everyone for making the last four days a wonderful community event and a great party for the village of Steeple Bumpstead. From the Church Street party, the events at St Marys Church, the Congregational Church, the Moot Hall, the Camping Close picnic, all the houses decorated, the Scarecrows, the two pubs, the village hall, the Scouts, the Schools,the Beacon and no doubt much much more that has not been mentioned.
As a village we have celebrated 70 magnificent years of Her Majesty the Queen and hopefully history will show as a village we just simply wanted to say “Thank you”
