The Platinum Jubilee weekend brought the best out of Swanage and Rotary was right there to help the weekend go with a bang!

From preparing food and delivering it to the site of the Street Party on Friday 3rd June (at 6:30am!) to stewarding both ends of the High Street to manning the Corfe Castle event on Sunday 5th June, Swanage and Purbeck Rotarians were hard at it to ensure that all the hard work that had been done by the Platinum Jubilee Committee, under the leadership of Linda Welsh, went like clockwork.

As ever, the unflappable Sue Whitton was at the forefront of the Rotary element of the organisation, with David Pike jumping to the rescue when it was discovered that the street party was short of bread and ham!

The event was extremely well organised with as many people in the town on the Friday as many people could remember.

Celebrations continued in Corfe Castle on the Sunday with the gathering at the Millennium Sports Field in West Street, where people were invited to bring their own picnics. Entertainment was provided.

It was certainly a weekend that will remain long in people’s memories.
