On Friday 20th May, around a thousand young people gathered in Winchester Cathedral for an exuberant celebration of Her Majesty's Platinum Jubilee. The occasion was organised for the Lord-Lieutenant of Hampshire by the Hampshire Youth Network, on which Boys' Brigade is represented.
And BB played a key role in the event. Tasked with organising the official road closures for the procession to the Cathedral, we were delighted that Alton Town Council made the various road signs available at no charge. Josh George from our Company acted as a Steward in the Cathedral, while other BB Boys contributed to the prayers and to the procession of banners depicting the seventy years of the monarch's reign. The Chandlers Ford BB brass band played outside the Cathedral, welcoming everyone as they arrived.
It was a memorable event, and the seven 2nd Alton Boys will not forget being part of this magnificent celebration.
