IT’S better late than never for Honley villagers who’ll be putting on a party for the Queen’s diamond jubilee this Saturday.
Honley Village Trust will be leading the celebrations with events at the village hall, Moor Bottom, including a hog roast, antiques valuations, boules, stalls and a children’s crown designing competition.
Trinity Church, across the road, will be serving cream teas while Honley Scouts will be organising games for children. There will also be a flower festival and concert at St Mary’s Church, Church Street.
Villagers were advised by Kirklees Council to hold their celebrations on a weekend after the actual jubilee, which took place on June 4.
Carol Roberts, secretary of Honley Village Trust, said: “The whole village will be out celebrating.
“We weren’t bothered about having it on a different weekend because we could extend the celebrations.
“It’s a plus really. The Queen is making a year of it so we’re making a few extra weeks of it,” Carol added.
