We are delighted to announce the winners of our Jubilee Stones competition!
Thank you to all of the children who entered the competition to paint a Jubilee themed stone for our Platinum Jubilee commemorative memorial.
Woodley Town Mayor, Cllr Janet Sartorel, had the very difficult task of choosing three winners from over 1000 stones.
“Congratulations to all of the children who entered the competition and worked so hard on their designs. There were so many amazing stones to choose from and it was very hard to choose just three winners,” said Janet.

All of the stones from the competition will surround our Queen’s Green Canopy Jubilee Tree in Woodford Park as a permanent commemorative display to mark and celebrate The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
“I am looking forward to seeing all of the stones set in place, creating an outstanding commemorative display for The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. Thank you to all of the Council staff who have worked so hard to create this,” said Janet.
We are currently busy getting the display ready and will announce soon when we will be unveiling it.
