A big THANK YOU and congratulations to the many people who helped to make Marlborough's Platinum Jubilee celebrations a wonderful reality.
We hope everyone who came along will have happy memories for many years to come, and will join us once again to say "Thank you, Your Majesty, for your 70 years of service".
