Memories welcomed for jubilee timeline

RESIDENTS in Clevedon and the Gordano Valley are being invited to help create a 60-year timeline to help mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

The East Clevedon United Benefice will hold a day at St Mary’s Church Hall in Castle Road, Clevedon, when people can take along memorabilia, photos and memories of local or national events held during Queen Elizabeth’s reign.

Items can be taken to the hall between 10am-4.30pm on January 28 and will be returned the same day or the next morning.

The day will be photographed so a permanent record of the timeline can be kept.

Light refreshments will be available.
