Winchcombe Jack-in-the-Green 2012

The Winchcombe (Gloucestershire) Jack-in-the-Green paraded through the streets of Winchombe on Saturday 5th May 2012. The Winchcombe  Jack was revived on August 31st 2009 as part of “Marking the Year.” A Jack was recorded as visiting a local school by Emma Dent of Sudeley Castle in the 1890’s. The Jack was then resurrected for May Day 2010 and a local May bank holiday village fete and now appears every year
