UPDATED: Lawley and Overdale Parish Council to host a Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Party in Overdale

UPDATE 09/08/2022: Third time’s the charm!

We are pleased to announce that the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Party is back on – same time, place, and activities as before, but now taking place on Sunday 4 September. We look forward to (definitely) seeing you all there!

UPDATE 14/07/2022: We have taken the difficult decision to further POSTPONE the Overdale Queen’s Platinum Jubilee party this Sunday 17 July 2022, due to the extreme weather forecast and upon advice from the relevant agencies.

We will, however, be looking to reschedule the event and will let you all know as soon as possible.

UPDATE 23/06/2022: We are happy to announce that the Overdale Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Party is back on! Same time and place, same great activities, and same price (that’s FREE), but on Sunday 17 July!

We look forward to seeing you there, on what is sure to be a sunny day! We hope!

UPDATE 05/06/2022: Disappointingly (but perhaps unsurprisingly to anybody who’s looked out a window) we are sorry to announce that the Overdale Queen’s Platinum Jubilee party is CANCELLED today due to the poor weather.

We’re looking to reschedule the event though – keep your eyes open for further updates!
