A PICNIC in the park is being planned to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

Members of Sudbury Town Council’s leisure and environment committee are hoping to stage the event at Belle Vue Park over the Jubilee weekend in early June.

Plans are also in place to have an Edwardian-style fancy dress theme and an orchestra playing live music at the park, which was opened as a public space in 1937 to mark the coronation of King George VI.
