Don’t miss the lighting of the Platinum Jubilee Beacon at the top of St Leonard’s church tower at 9.45pm on Thursday 2 June. The inimitable Eynsham Morris will be in attendance and everyone is invited! Let’s make this an occasion to remember.
We are happy to acknowledge a Jubilee grant towards our costs from the District Council. Thanks also to the crews from Eynsham Fire Station and Rewley Road Fire Station for their time and skill in lifting the cauldron up the tower - click on the photo to enlarge it.
In recognition of the amazing work of the Eynsham Food Bank’s team of volunteers in supporting vulnerable members of our community during the pandemic, we have invited Bob and Pamela Thiele to light the beacon. They are the bedrock on which the Food Bank runs and have faithfully done all the ‘heavy lifting’ for this activity over an unrelenting two years.
The Food Bank is still there if you need it - or can support it! Just call / text 07738 063083, or donate online.
