Perry Simmonds - 16 May 2012

Bucks Fizz, Epsom and a bit of Katherine Jenkins. Which direction are you heading this weekend?

Diamond Jubliee, where will you be?

I am a bit of a Royalist and a fan of our Monarch of 60 years and especially so this year when I have managed to get 9 days off for the price of 3!

A group of us here at OGGSVenue are then gathering at my place on Saturday morning for a Bucks Fizz breakfast before we head to Epsom Race Course and the Grandstand. Here we will listen to Katherine Jenkins sing the National Anthem and like our Queen, we will begin our weekend.

My original intention was to blog and tell you about the celebrations local to us here in Westminster. I found that although the Royal Barge will be floating past Westminster Pier and the Monday night concert is taking place at Buckingham Palace (which is just a short walk through St James’s park across the road from us) there is not really anything specifically happening on our doorstep.

Nevertheless, here is a helpful link that cropped up during my google research journey that I thought I would share with you to follow the activities of the Royal family worldwide

Whatever you do and whatever direction you head for this weekend and whether you are a Royalist or not, have a wonderful time. After all, celebrating two events (2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games and the Diamond Jubilee) of such enormous importance in one year in England is a once in a lifetime opportunity for all of us.
