Coalville Twenty12

Mosaic Making

The sun was shining and spirits were high today in Coalville park with thousands of people turning out to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee and London Olympics at the Coalville Twenty12 event.

As Chair of the Special Expenses Working Group which organised the celebration I felt exceptionally proud that the team behind the day managed to deliver such an amazing event.

Our small team of Council officers, lead by Goff, Angela and Julia worked so hard to make the day memorable for the people of Coalville. A sincere thank you to all who made the event possible.

Absolutely everyone I spoke with commented on how much they enjoyed the event with something for all, from the very youngest to the very oldest. Right from the start with the procession of the 1948 Olympic torch through to the very last act on stage spirits were high.

But most importantly today was a day for community.
What a Palaver

Local groups and clubs had the opportunity to raise funds and awareness, local schoolchildren and musicians entertained, local businesses were able to offer their services and products, and local people took the time to mix and relax.

Today certainly wasn't a day for party politics and I am equally delighted that councillors of all parties put aside their differences to work together to deliver a memorable event. I hope we acheived that.

I truly hope you enjoyed today as much as I did.

Please take the time to leave a comment about what you thought. What did you enjoy? What could we do better?

Your view is very much appreciated.
