The Village of Corfe Castle joined the County and Commonwealth during the first week of June 2012 in celebrating Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee to recognise her 60 years as our Monarch.
The main celebrations took place over the weekend of Saturday 2nd June to Tuesday 5th of June 2012. The Corfe Castle Diamond Jubilee Committee, along with a number of supporting local organisations, developed a varied programme of events that covered all age groups, with the emphasis on fun involving everyone who wants to join in.
Apart from some of the competitions, which carried a small entry fee, entry to all of the events were free of charge if you showed your official souvenir programme – there was huge support and everybody enjoyed themselves!
To commemorate this historic occasion a limited edition Corfe Castle Diamond Jubilee bone china mug was presented to all our local school children at the end of the celebrations. A limited number of these mugs were also available for purchase from shops in the village.
