April 26, 2012 - PRLog -- The White Swan is a 17th Century freehouse and restaurant located in the heart of the historic and picturesque village on the outskirts of Cambridge. The village is proud of its heritage and its village pub. "The Queens Diamond jubilee is a time for great celebration for people of all ages and we are planning a fantastic series of events. We are delighted to have the support and sponsorship of Tyche Inns for this" Says Ray Jakes who has helped organise the festivities. Gerry Skews, Director of Tyche Inns and Martin Read who runs The White Swan are fully supporting the activities which start on Friday 1st June 2012. Mr Skews, said, "It seems most of the villagers are getting involved in the celebrations, the "Water Games" are apparently a crowd pleaser and Tyche Inns is pleased to sposor the event". A full program of activities will be posted on the web site and tickets for several functions will be available for sale in the Pub and the Post Office.

Several breweries will be offering Jubilee Ales and we are delighted to offer some fantastic real ales to all visitors.
