MIDDLEWICH'S JUBILEE BEACON


The familiar shape of St Michael & All Angels Church is seen against a velvet blue sky on the evening of Jubilee Day, June 4th 2012, as Middlewich's Jubilee Beacon joins thousands of others to celebrate 60 years of the Queen's reign.
The scene is pictured for us by Nicola Holbrook.
The organisation of the beacon and its lighting was in the always capable hands of Stephen Bailey
The beacon on top of our church tower was just one of over 4,200 lit all over the country from 10pm on Jubilee Day, with the last one being lit by Her Majesty the Queen herself at Buckingham Palace.

One year ago, on the 5th June 2011, the Middlewich Diary section of the Salt Town Site was looking at an early 1970s shot of our town's uncompleted, unlovely, and unloved 'Piazza' in the Bullring (predecessor to the much more attractive 'amphitheatre'), complete with Middlewich legend George Robinson stealing into shot on the left
