Platinum Jubilee: Share photos of street parties and memories
PHOTOGRAPHS will be chosen to create a special exhibition ahead of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations this year.
The Royal Borough invites residents to share their snaps of Royal Jubilee street parties and memories from past milestone anniversaries.
These may include images for jubilees in 1977, 2002 and 2012, or for the coronation in 1953.
And images of people’s collectibles are also welcome, including dishes, ornaments, tea towels or postage stamps.

Councilor Mayor John Story said: ‘Over the decades, Her Majesty’s Jubilees have been at the center of great celebrations, both nationally and as a community, bringing together everyone of all ages and walks of life. for street parties and other entertainment.
“Contributing to a photographic exhibition of past street parties and memorabilia related to previous jubilees and the coronation is an exciting way to celebrate his historic reign, rekindle memories, share stories with younger generations and perhaps come up with ideas for this year’s street parties. In the process.”
The exhibition, which will be called 70 years 70 photos, will see the images displayed around local libraries, ahead of the June celebrations.
One lucky person will be drawn to win a new book about The Queen.

Councilor Samantha Rayner, Cabinet Member for Business and Resident Services, Culture and Heritage, and Windsor, said: “There’s a lot going on this Platinum Jubilee year and this photographic appeal is one way fun to get involved and celebrate with your family and friends.
“It’s great to have each of our 11 libraries involved in the celebrations and I’m sure each of our communities will have their stories to tell.
“We are proud that Her Majesty is a resident of the Royal Borough and many of us have pictures of Jubilee street parties and probably some hidden commemorative collectibles that could once again be in the spotlight thanks to this photographic exhibition.”
