Scope and content

Bampton held all sorts of events to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II June 2nd to 5th 2012.

On the Saturday, the SPAJERS held the annual Shirt Race as usual and there was a really good number of entrants in all the classes. On Sunday June 3rd there was a play 'Whatever Became of The Red Shoes?' in the Village Hall in the afternoon. In the hall in the evening there was a wonderful exhibition of talent from young and old when 'Has Bampton Got Talent?' showed it certainly had. In all the pubs there were Morris men practising and musicians playing.

Monday June 4th saw Bampton's three sides of Morris men dancing throughout the day with guest teams from around the country joining them after tea. The Bampton Community Archive held a grand plant sale at Eagle House in Church View to help raise funds for the equipment needed to run the Archive.

Also on the Monday, June 4th the Pre-school ran a stall where children could decorate their own gingerbread man and they ran a duck race in the brook. There was a judging of Garlands down by the War Memorial in the Market Square.

On Tuesday, the morning began with a peal of bells and an Ecumenical Service In St Mary The Virgin and the church was packed. In the afternoon there was a sports day with races and nearly all Bampton's sports on show an offering a try which despite the miserable weather, was well attended and much enjoyed. Unfortunately the RAF Falcans were not able to start the afternoon by landing on the playing field due to the very poor visibility and rain but they came in their vans to meet and greet. There were many stalls and shows to keep everyone entertained.

In the evening on Tuesday there were street parties all around Bampton and a super barn dance and pig roast in the Market Square which was packed and thankfully the rain had stopped so great fun was had by everyone. It was a wonderful four days of events to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee and the Parish Council's sub committee which organised it did a wonderful job.
