Previous Jubilee reminders
The recent Diamond Jubilee celebrations in Old Buckenham have raised questions about what happened at the Silver Jubilee in 1977 and the Golden Jubilee in 2002.
The oak tree planted in 1977 on the village Green has now been identified (see photographs) and is on the left as you go down the road towards All Saints Church. It has rather a squat shape as it was planted directly under some power cables and so the top has been pruned back.
In 2002 there was a tea party in the Village Hall and a specially built brickwork seat was dedicated and formally opened' by Gillian Shepherd who was MP for this area at that time.
