Girlguiding Anglia’s Platinum Jubilee Celebration

March 7, 2022

On 2nd June 2022, we will celebrate another unique milestone in our history, Her Majesty The Queen’s 70th year as our Monarch and Head of the Commonwealth – her Platinum Jubilee. It is a feat no previous monarch has achieved.

More than 1,500 beacons will be lit throughout the United Kingdom, Channel Islands, Isle of Man and UK Overseas Territories, and one in each of the capital cities of Commonwealth countries in recognition of The Queen’s long and selfless service.

As The Queen is our Patron, Girlguiding has been asked to take part in the beacon lighting ceremony. At least 70 beacons will be lit by Girlguiding members across the UK and beyond to mark each year. They will be the penultimate beacons before the Queen lights her own one at the palace. Girlguiding Anglia are really proud that we will be lighting one of these official beacons at Hautbois Activity Centre.
