The lighting of the Hoo Jubilee Beacon

Lots of events are taking place across Medway and around the Hoo Peninsula. I will this week feature a village by village event listing, looking at all those activities taking place during the special Bank Holiday weekend (from this Saturday 2 June to Tuesday 5 June).

A network of 4000 Beacons will be lit by communities and others throughout the United Kingdom. And one of those Beacons will be erected in the village of Hoo - one of only six to be located in the Medway towns.

The Hoo Jubilee Beacon will be at the Kingshill Recreation Ground - at the end of Fourwents Road (at the top of Bells Lane).

Our Beacon will be lit between 10pm and 10.30pm on Bank Holiday Monday (4 June). Please make every effort to pop along to this free community event. It will be great to take part in what will be a once in a lifetime opportunity to celebrate Her Majesty the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

Find out more about the Jubilee Beacons located in Medway by visiting Medway Council’s events website here. If you’d like to read more about the national network of Jubilee Beacons and the history of Beacon lighting - click here.

See you on Monday evening at the Kingshill Rec!!!
