The Queen's Platinum Jubilee

In 2022, Her Majesty The Queen became the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee, having acceded to the throne on the 6 February 1952 when she was just 25 years old.

Fareham has a history of recognising significant Royal milestones, so to commemorate this anniversary, we have planned a series of community events and activities within the Borough.

 

The Queen's Copse

The Platinum Copse

The Queen's Green Canopy

Beacon lighting event

The Big Jubilee Lunch

Street parties

Spring Clean for The Queen

Queen Elizabeth II Platinum Jubilee Park

 

The official Platinum Jubilee Emblem is available for use in advertising for all Platinum Jubilee activities and celebrations, including community and national events.

Read the full guidance on using the emblem and download it for free from the Royal website External Hyperlink.


The Queen's Copse

To celebrate Her Majesty's 70 years of service we have created a sponsored tree planting scheme within Abbey Meadows, Titchfield.

The Queen's Copse will become a secluded and protected wildlife habitat to encourage biodiversity in the area, and Fareham residents, community groups, organisations, clubs and businesses sponsored trees either for themselves or in memory of a loved one.

Please note this area is now sold out.

Visit the webpage to find out more.

The Platinum Copse 

Due to the popularity and high demand for The Queen's Copse tree planting scheme, we are delighted to announce that a second area has been identified to provide even more residents, community groups, organisations, clubs and businesses with the opportunity to sponsor a commemorative tree.

Applications to sponsor a tree have now closed.

Visit the webpage to find out more.

The Queen's Green Canopy

In 2021, a unique nationwide tree planting initiative 'The Queen's Green Canopy' was launched offering people across the United Kingdom the opportunity to "Plant a Tree for the Jubilee".

You can find out more about this initiative on the website. External Hyperlink

Lighting of a Beacon

On Thursday 2 June 2022, it is anticipated that more than 1,500 beacons will be lit across the UK at 9.45pm and Fareham is set to light its own beacon from Portchester Castle. This free event, in partnership with English Heritage, and kindly sponsored by Everyone Active External Hyperlink, will provide live music, food and drink concessions and children's activities so that the whole community can come together and pay tribute to The Queen at this momentous time.

The Big Jubilee Lunch

The Big Jubilee Lunch will be taking place on Sunday 5 June across the Nation.

Every year since the idea began in 2009, The Big Lunch has encouraged communities to celebrate their connections and get to know each other a little bit better. You can host your own Jubilee Lunch and sign up for a free pack to help get you started.

Find out more here. External Hyperlink

Street parties

If you would like to hold your own street party to celebrate The Queen's Jubilee please visit this webpage to find out more.

Please note: the Council will only permit road closures where no access will be required to adjacent shops, businesses and services during your event.

We are encouraging residents to think about how they can make their event as sustainable as possible. This could include using social media instead of paper posters, asking everyone to bring their own cups to picnics and tea parties, going plastic-free and having dedicated places at the events for people to recycle waste.

Measuring and reducing environmental impact and educating young people about sustainability is a key element of the Queen's Jubilee Pageant. A Greener Event has also put together a helpful guide to help you make your event a sustainable one External Hyperlink.

Eventbrite also has a helpful article with more useful tips on how to keep your event sustainable External Hyperlink.

Spring Clean for The Queen

The Council would like to invite local people, community groups and anti-littering legends to take part in a Borough-wide litter picking event, as part of the national 'Spring Clean for The Queen' campaign. The national initiative ran from 25 March until 1 April, but residents are still welcome to take part should they wish to.

We can provide participants with litter pickers and bin bags if you need them and will also arrange for the bags to be collected. Residents are reminded to recycle items where possible and not to leave bags by the side of rubbish bins as these can be spread far and wide by weather and wildlife.

If you would like to take part, please email publicspacesfrontline@fareham.gov.uk or call 01329 236100.

Queen Elizabeth II Platinum Jubilee Park

To provide a lasting commemoration, the public open space that is currently referred to as Daedalus Common will be named 'Queen Elizabeth II Platinum Jubilee Park' and a formal opening of the open space has been organised in honour of The Queen later this year.

Once opened, this space will provide footpaths, cycle paths, wildlife habitats and dog walking areas, the Daedalus sculpture and commemorative seating. The aviation-themed children's play area adjacent to the entrance of the park on Gosport Road, which opened last year, is also being renamed.
