The village of Aslockton will be joining in with the Diamond Jubilee celebrations today (Monday 4 June), as children from the Archbishop Cranmer School will descend for a Royal visit.
Four children and two adults from the primary school, all dressed up as royalty, will travel from Grantham to Aslockton on an East Midlands Trains service. At Aslockton station, they will be met by a pony and trap to take the children on a tour of the village.
Nigel Bent, Customer Service Manager for East Midlands Trains, said: “We’re really pleased to be supporting the children on such a memorable day. This is a great example of how the community can work together to create such a sense of occasion.
“Everybody has worked hard to get the station ready for today’s pageant, and we are grateful for the support of the Poacher Line Community Rail Partnership, Aslockton Parish Council and of course the schoolchildren from Archbishop Cranmer.”
In advance of the village pageant, the station has been dressed up with bunting and new planters have been supplied to help brighten up the station. In addition, the schoolchildren have painted new picture displays for the station, all relating to the Diamond Jubilee.
The event has also been supported by the Poacher Line Community Rail Partnership and Aslockton Parish Council.
Timings for the pageant are as follows:
Following this, the children will be taken on a tour of the village in a pony and trap.
