BET's Jubilee Celebration

4th June 2012 

Working with the Parish Council who organised for the Jubilee Stone to be engraved, BET were pleased to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee by hosting a short Blessing of the Stone by our Rector, Margi Campbell

Given the poor weather we had over the weekend we were particularly pleased that the rain held off

There was a good turnout from the village, young and old ventured up to the Jubilee Stone Nature Reserve in readiness for the Service. The updated inscription on the Jubilee Stone The Rector's service was befitting for the occasion and added a special sense of purpose to the afternoon. 
In addition to formal side to the afternoon, there was an excellent demonstration by Peter Speight on Pole Lathe Turning and an excellent collection of various cakes to accompany the teas & coffees that were made available by the BET Trustess.
The service gave people a moment to reflect on other Backwellian's who had stood in the same place on previous special days in our past!

A special thank you to everyone for making the day another successful occasion for BET
