The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee / Many congratulations

30 May 2022

The Queen's Platinum Jubilee is almost upon us, and we hope you all have a great long weekend. There will be much to celebrate and enjoy. We send our congratulations to Her Majesty on all she has achieved over the decades.

The Jubilee for many is a time for reflection, along with celebration, of times gone by and hopefully many happy memories. For some, it is also a marker in time to reflect how far we have travelled on our individual journeys, and perhaps to contemplate our current wellbeing (both physical and financial) in comparison to the Diamond Jubilee of 2012, and maybe even further back to the Silver Jubilee of 1977. Much to remember, and hopefully to make you smile.

Reaching back to 1977, we thought we would look at general household costs then, what they might have been with straight inflationary costs, and what they really are:
