The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Beacons
From 2nd June 2012 to 5th June 2012
The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations will take place across the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth on the weekend of 2 to 5 June 2012.
There are many ways Scouts can get involved, one of which is to take part in the Jubilee Beacons project. There is a long history of lighting beacons to celebrate Royal events. The aim for the Diamond Jubilee is to light 2,012 throughout the UK.
Scouts are invited to organise events at a local level, using the attraction of lighting a beacon to involve your community in the celebrations and raise the profile of Scouting.
Shine a light
If you’d like to consider lighting a beacon for The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in 2012, the Department for Culture, Media and Sport has produced a guide with further details.
Further information is available on the Jubilee Beacons website.
If you’re organising the event yourself, The Scout Association Public Liability Policy, arranged though Unity (Scout Insurance Services), covers personal injury or property damage to people attending your beacons event.
Unity can also arrange cover for other risks such as cancellation of the event, hired in equipment and your Group’s money. If you would like to check on anything to do with event insurance, please contact Unity.
