Catching the national mood
Like most communities, Blackham comes together at times of national celebration and organises events to tie in with what is happening nationally. Here are a few examples. We’d love to have more photographs and stories if you have them.
This photo was taken at Highfields on 26 June1902 and was a village picnic organised to mark the coronation of King Edward VII. Click on the picture to see more details from the photo and to find out why they had two picnics
Here is a picture from George V’s Silver Jubilee in 1935 with Mr Wickham standing outside the village hall, decked with bunting. We would love more photos from this if you have any.
The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, June 2012 Carrying on the village tradition
