A COMPETITION has been launched in Heanor to find the best-dressed home for the Diamond Jubilee.

The town’s traders’ association is offering a bumper food hamper to the house with the best display of bunting during the celebrations in June.

“It is just a way of boosting some moral in the town and a way of getting everyone involved in the Jubilee,” said Chairman of the Heanor Traders’ Association Simon Minto.

“We want to see the most patriotic, the loudest and the most colourful homes decked out for the event.”

Anyone wishing to enter can post pictures of their decorative efforts on the Love Heanor Facebook page.

The food hamper is set to be full of goodies donated by members of the traders’ association.

The association will act as the judging panel and winners are to be announced in the News in the week following the Diamond Jubilee, in the June 7 edition of the paper.

And to further celebrate the Queen’s 60th year on the throne, plans are afoot to hold a sponsored charity abseil of St Lawrence’s Church in the Market Place.
