A Church's Special Invitation to Celebrate the Jubilee 

A Baptist church in Yorkshire is looking for people celebrating 60 years - of anything - to a special jubilee event.

Whether it is marriage, life, or work, members of Gildersome Baptist Church have been inviting people who are celebrating 60 years to join them as guests of honour at their Diamond Jubilee Garden Party on June 3.

Already several have responded. Two who have been invited to Buckingham Palace during May have agreed to come to the Gildersome garden party as well.

The church is especially excited to have the niece and great nephew of the man who was the Herald Trumpeter at the Coronation as invited guests.

On the day there will be a full programme of activities including stories, games, quizzes, and a video of the Coronation.

'Not everyone can make it all the way to one of the Queen's Garden Parties at Buckingham Palace, so the church decided to arrange its own in Gildersome,' explained minister the Revd David Newton.

'Lots of places have street parties, but we felt that Gildersome deserves its own garden party.

'We've had a great response.'
