70 Glorious Years

June 2022 marks a unique moment in our history, as Her Majesty the Queen becomes the first British monarch to reign for 70 years.

To mark this historic occasion Merton Heritage Service has compiled a set of Jubilee resources combining online displays, archive film, research material, puzzles, craft activities and recipes. Over the coming weeks we also plan to add a range of digitised material from the local heritage collection.

Merton Library & Heritage Service will also be staging a programme of Jubilee activities - you can find more details on Eventbrite and a small collection of films and reminiscences on the Merton Heritage Youtube channel.

We are keen to add to our Jubilee collection. If you have photos, objects or stories of the Coronation, Jubilee celebrations or Royal Visits that you would like to share for posterity, please contact Merton Heritage Service - Telephone 020 8545 3239 oir email: local.studies@merton.gov.uk
