Great news – the sun is back here in Dorset! We hope that’s the wet weather behind us now, because we’ve got lots of really exciting things to do over the next few weeks. The Queen’s Jubilee is going to be one big party for the whole country, and we mean to celebrate in style here at Newlands! Here’s a couple of things we’re looking forward to in the coming weeks…
Royal Navy Ship in Lyme Regis 18th – 20th May
HMS Edinburgh, a type 42 warship from the Royal Navy, will be sailing into Lyme Bay on 18th May, marking the official start of the Diamond Jubilee Celebrations in Lyme Regis. It will join the giant Silverlines Cruise Ship, which will be mooring in the bay to allow its American passengers to disembark and enjoy the pleasures of the town and learn about its rich history.
These impressive vessels moored in the bay will bear witness to a weekend of fun, pomp and celebration, including a grand ceremony planned to mark the renaming of the central pavilion in honour of the Jubilee. Can’t wait!
Jubilee celebrations at Newlands Holiday Park
Over at our caravan park in Dorset, we have a packed line-up of events going on throughout the week. One of the main highlights is The Big Lunch BBQ, which takes place on Sunday June 3rd from 12 noon to 2pm on the patio and conservatory.
Griff Griffiths will be providing live music, and there will be face painting and prizes for best fancy dress. Demand will be high, so it’s a ticket only event (available from reception). Prices are £7.50 for adults and £5.25 for children.
