"Many events and the publicity costs were privately sponsored; also some of the memorabilia - the Jubilee tree in the churchyard, Coronation bus shelter plaque and the Jubilee flags. Thanks are due to Graham Bugler who built the flower trough and the Portman Arms (Race night) and Spring Holton Farm (Beacon) who hosted events, Jean Weber who unveiled the flower trough because of her 'royal connection in 1952' (see audio/video) and Jim & Daphne Cranton, who planted the flowering cherry tree on behalf of the East Chinnock Parish Council."
