YOUR PICTURES- Redditch gets creative in their Jubilee celebrations

Redditch Editorial 7th Jun, 2022   0

REDDITCH got creative over the Jubilee weekend as they came up with wonderfully inventive ways to mark the Queen’s 70 years on the throne.

A wonderful display was created at the Hutchings-Ellins home in Batchley, featuring a balloon arch, igloo and bar, which were provided by Occasional Occasions.

This home in Batchley really got into the Jubilee spirit. s


The Boss Baker also provided an incredible Jubilee cake featuring a crown and plenty of union jacks.

There was bunting galore and a cardboard cutout of her majesty to get people into the spirit, with even Dave the Dog getting into a patriotic mood.


One person visiting her daughter in Callow Hill paid a fitting knitted tribute to her majesty before placing it on the postbox outside of the village Gazebo.

The wonderful work of art was admired by the entire area during the Jubilee weekend.

Over at the Bomford Hill Jubilee Party on Sunday, this sensational effort from Kirsty Jeens won first prize in the cake competitions over-16s category.

Kirsty’s cake was Victoria sponge, decorated in fondant and royal icing and all of the gems on the masterpiece were hand-cut to shape using fruit pastilles.


This amazing cake scooped first prize at the Bomford Hill party. s

The cake only took Kirsty four days to make and it won her a £50 shopping voucher in her first-ever competition entry.

Coun Mike Rouse said: “The standard of cakes entered into the competition was extremely high and the judges had a very difficult job to decide a winner.

“Kirsty’s entry was magnificent, both in terms of design and taste and she should be very proud of herself.”
