Thurlaston celebrates the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee
Her Majesty The Queen became the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee after 70 years of service. Thurlaston celebrated the Jubilee with a Tea Party at the Village Hall on Sunday 5th June 2022. The event was declared a huge success. There were a large number of attendees all of whom seemed to be having a great time. The rain held off so that we could use the gazebos and tables in the garden so supplementing limited space in the Village Hall.
John Bretherton, Thurlaston Parish Council Chairman, opened proceedings by planting a village Jubilee tree, a flowering crab apple, at the front of the Hall. In due course an engraved memorial plaque will be mounted nearby.
There were many donated homemade cakes; at the end of the afternoon surplus cakes were auctioned off. In total the event raised a goodly sum of money and the community will be sending a generous donation to Rugby Hope4. The Village Hall Committee will also be able to purchase new crockery for the Hall.
Without doubt this was a successful Jubilee celebration in Thurlaston village.
Mary Cook, Thurlaston Village Hall Committee Chair

Poors Plot Charity
Charity details were updated during October 2021. Generally Trustees meet twice a year during each spring and autumn. Trustees are happy to make a grant of £300 available to any young person of the parish when they finish full time education to help with the cost of their further education. A grant application form is available on this website for making requests.
Planning Applications Database
As of August 2021 all Planning applications which have been assessed by the Parish Council are located under the Planning section of the website. This includes representations relevant to the Rugby Local Plan.
The website now contains information on how to use the community defibrillator which is located in the old telephone kiosk on Main Street. To some degree this helps with villager training given this has not been possible during the Coronavirus pandemic.
