Saffron Walden’s Platinum Jubilee Extravaganza took place from Thursday 02 – Sunday 05 June 22 and went exceptionally well, and without incident. Enjoyed by thousands over the four days, it has received much positive feedback for Saffron Walden Town Council (SWTC). SWTC has formally thanked all event sponsors including grant awarding bodies, commemorative programme prize sponsors, suppliers and entertainers, for their part in what was a successful weekend of events for SWTC. As well at the event co-ordination, SWTC officers and staff organised a ‘Beach on the Common’ for the half term holiday, produced a commemorative programme with prize draw, followed a structured publicity campaign and sourced grant funding and sponsorship.
At very short notice, SWTC Officers were pleased for Saffron Walden to make it onto ITV News where the national weather was filmed from Saffron Walden Common on Wed 1st June.
