Here comes the Diamond Jubilee..again!

Yes, its the second Diamond Jubilee this millennium and we are as ready as we can be. The showgardens have never looked better and tiny Union flags have started to emerge from our urns and planters in the Chilstone Showgardens.

HM The Queen is, of course, no stranger to our ornaments and architectural stone-she has probably seen them at Buckingham Palace, Clarence House and numerous Castles and fine buildings throughout her realm. In fact, as we near our own Diamond Jubilee (next year) we raise a glass to celebrate The Queen and Prince Phillip and wish them many more happy years in charge of the old country.

Although we will certainly be watching the River Pageant and having some Coronation Chicken sandwiches, we shall still be open throughout the Royal Diamond Jubillee weekend at our usual times, so do pop in if you are near Royal Tunbridge Wells.
