We have received two letters from the Lord-Lieutenant of Rutland Dr. Sarah Furness PhD informing residents of Rutland of the forthcoming suggestions to celebrate Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in June 2022.

Please read the attached two letters by clicking on the link below…

LL Letter to Councils – Platinum Jubilee Weekend

LL Letter to Councils – Queen’s Green Canopy

Let us know what your views are on how we in our village of Ridlington can contribute to collectively celebrating this amazing milestone.

You may have read in the minutes of the last Parish Council meeting held on September 22nd that it was proposed that a committee, to be responsible for arranging the Platinum Jubilee celebrations, should be formed.

A flyer, for delivery to all households, asking for ideas and volunteers will be produced in due course. Rutland County Council will also be setting up a portal on their website, so this will help us all to keep up to date with what the County of Rutland is doing as they too are amassing ideas and suggestions.

The Parish Councillors would very much appreciate hearing from you. Thank you

Dave Johnson

All members of the public welcome.




Back in 2018 during a moment of madness I applied for and was successful in gaining a place in the 2019 London Marathon. As a result of an injury followed by cancellation due to COVID the date has been deferred on two occasions.

Three and half years down the line and the day is upon me. I hope to be on the start line this Sunday (October 3rd 2021) but more importantly to cross the finish line…….. this Sunday!

It would be wonderful if my act of madness resulted in donations being made to my two chosen charities. They are:


hospice for children with life limiting conditions 



dog rescue located at Wansford


If you choose to donate you WILL make a difference. Visit Virgin Money giving – donate – Shelagh Page or click on the following Link…



Thank you!
