Tollerton Jubilee 2022...

Saturday 2nd July 2022

To celebrate the historic occasion of her Majesty the Queen's platinum jubilee, a group of residents in Tollerton formed a committee. They wanted to raise funds and organize a community event during the extended bank holiday weekend in June.

The first fundraiser took place in February and was an 'all things royal' Jubilee quiz at the Black Horse pub and this raised enough money to open the account.

Thereafter, donations came in from all of the village groups, societies and the Parish Council.

At Easter, the traditional Tollerton duck race on the river Kyle was resurrected and proved extremely popular and lucrative for the funds; thereafter plans for a jubilee picnic began to take shape.
