70 years Celebration – Moggerhanger Park – Beacon and song


We do hope that you have put June 2nd into your diary, and will be able to come to Moggerhanger Park for the lighting of our Beacon at 9.45pm and the singing of the Song for the Commonwealth.

Too late for the children?   Well no, as we have four days’ holiday and they can sleep in!!

There are four chances to learn our song on: 

  1. Monday 16 May at Cople Church
  2. Tuesday 17 May at Willington Church:
  3. Wednesday 18 May at Moggerhanger Church.The above churches will be open at 6.45pm, we will sing at 7pm and be home before 8pm.   Do please make the effort to come along to one of these sessions, and collect a copy of the words
  4. Sunday 29 May Gwynneth Akins is also taking a rehearsal at 11.45am after the service at Willington Methodist Chapel.

Choose which day is most convenient for you or come to all of them if you want to!!

If you want to listen to the song beforehand or want to have your own copy of the words CLICK HERE:

Everyone is welcome.


We are so happy to be part of the Commonwealth Celebrations for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, along with many other choirs across the UK and Commonwealth. Our official Benefice Choir photo which has been taken especially for the Commonwealth Resounds’ records below.

This is a Historical occasion, children in the future will read about it in their history books, so you’ll need a flag to wave on the evening, your copy of the song and a torch.

Moggerhanger Park will be open from 6.30pm. There will be bands playing between 7pm and 8pm, while you can enjoy a drink from the bar, or a juicy morsel from the Barbecue.

There’ll be Face Painting for the children, as well as a Bouncy Castle, and Dance music in the Courtyard from 8.30pm until 9pm and again, at the end of the evening.

Please note that while there is no charge for admission, we will all need a ticket to get into the Park. You should apply on their web-site www.moggerhangerpark.com where there are further details about the Event.

From 9.30pm we join with the other Commonwealth countries and all parts of the British Isles in paying respects to our Queen. Our Master of Ceremonies will introduce the Fanfare, The Earl of Erroll will light the Beacon, and we will sing the special song we have learnt.

After The National Anthem, the Master of Ceremonies will lead us in three cheers for Her Majesty, you can applaud, wave your flags, listen to some more music, buy the last sausage on the Barbecue, and then we’ll make our ways home safely.

Gates will be closed at 11pm.

Finally . . . Please take ALL litter home with you.

“Leave nothing but your footprints, Take nothing but memories of a remarkable occasion in which YOU took part .”

So, looking forward to spending a lovely evening with you all
