How Warley Town Celebrated the Queen’s Jubilee

Thanks to a £500 Ward form grant the Warley Community Association were able to organise a very well attended Jubilee celebration.

There were lots of stalls and activities available with several entries for the best crown competition.

Deputy Mayor Cllr Stephanie Clarke also attended the event helping to crown the Jubilee Queen.

Despite it being a touch cold the event was a success and a good time was had by all.
