Lady Anya Sainsbury will be lighting Preston Candover’s jubilee beacon which will be sited at a high spot on the Preston Farms estate on a line with several other beacons, making an illuminated chain across Hampshire. Lady Sainsbury will light the beacon at 9.45pm on Thursday, 2 June, to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II.
Residents are invited to join in the celebrations from 9.0pm at the beacon site situated behind farm buildings at the top of the hill beyond the village hall. The site can be reached by following the bridleway across the field next to the hall, up the hill past the vineyard and by turning right on to the farm road at the top.
Refreshments are being provided by Preston Farms and the parish council.
