PLATINUM JUBILEE CELEBRATIONS BEGIN IN FLEET

As part of the celebrations in Fleet, the Platinum Jubilee Committee, including Mark Mabin from LivingStones,  have organised a poster trail competition which includes 71 posters featuring the years 1952 – 2022*. Each poster takes a look at the global and local historical events for that year and showcases contributions from local history groups including our very own For Fleet’s Sake historical archives! (see more about the history of Fleet on our website menu, or join our Facebook Fleet History group).

The posters can be found in shop windows on both sides of Fleet Road, as well as Albert Street and Victoria Road. Each one has a small “royal symbol” drawing that was done by local school children (*with the exception of the poster at David French, where the trail begins). Your challenge…should  you choose to accept it…is to identify which poster has which symbol on and write down the year. You can download the competition guide sheet and entry form here and see an example of one of the posters below.
