Over 170 community events and activities have been supported by the Bradford Council’s Platinum Jubilee Small Grants scheme.

The events are aimed to bring local people together to have fun, get to know each other and celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

The Queen will mark her 70th anniversary in June

Cllr Sarah Ferriby, Bradford Council’s Executive Member for Healthy People and Places said: “People from across the Bradford district have been so creative in their ideas of how they’d like to bring people together.

“There are so many events including community exhibitions to celebrate her 70-year reign, crafting sessions to create an LGBTQ+ pride flag of diversity, art projects, photo and story sharing

“People are organising chai afternoons and tea dances, barbeques, suppers and cake baking and cake decorating”.

Community activities will range from galas, teddy bear picnics, fancy dress competitions and community suppers, to knit and natter sessions, treasure hunts, quizzes, tree planting and cultural afternoons.

“There are events for people who are experiencing homelessness, isolation or loneliness, there are dementia friendly events and intergenerational and intercultural events all reflecting the diverse communities of our district and of the Queen’s Commonwealth”, adds Cllr Sarah.

“There is such a diverse range of activities and events that there really is something for everyone.”
