Wix welcomes a very special visitor...set to make a guest appearance at the afternoon tea event.
When the Queen heard about all of the exciting things happening in Wix, she decided to pop down for a visit. She visited all of the illustrious spots including the Waggon, the village hall and the war memorial.
She's promised to stick around for the festivities including Bingo and Lighting the Beacon on Thursday; and the afternoon tea/picnic on Sunday. She was particularly excited to hear about the special crafting activities and bouncy castle for the children.
She will also be making an appearance at the Annual Parish meeting which is being held in the Village Hall at 7.30pm on Monday 30th May. She's coming mainly because the Parish council have promised to serve Earl Grey tea (as well as Tetleys) and Kerry is making brownies.

Now Wix will be putting on another Bingo evening just before the lighting of the beacon on Thursday 2nd June. As with all of the other Wix Jubilee events, it will be completely free to participate, and there will be some Jubilee themed prizes on offer.
Refreshments will be served, and there will be a raffle.
Further details will be announced in due course, keep and eye on www.wixparish.co.uk for the latest updates on the Jubilee celebrations.
Wix Parish Council is busy organising some activities for the Jubilee weekend at the beginning of June. There is a working party which also includes other villagers that are not councillors.
