Bill is celebrating Commonwealth Week 2012 by encouraging local residents to take part in the ‘Jubilee Time Capsule’ – an ambitious digital project designed as a gift for Her Majesty the Queen.
Members of the public are being asked to submit videos, photos or text about a memorable day between 6 February 1952 (Accession Day) and 6 June 2012.
The very best entries will be arranged into a ‘Diamond Collection’ before being formally presented later in the year. Winning contributors can also expect to receive a prize.
Bill said, “The Diamond Jubilee is a special occasion celebrating the life and work of a truly remarkable person.
For 60 years our Queen has served these nations with grace, dignity and devotion. A ‘people’s history’ is a lovely way of exploring that legacy.
I would also like to wish Commonwealth Week every success – both here and throughout the international community.”
To date the scheme has received more than 23,000 entries from people in 41 different Commonwealth countries. Submissions can be made online at www.jubileetimecapsule.org
