Louth Town Council Events Group are preparing recommendations on how the Council can support Queen Elizabeth’s 90th birthday celebrations for the town.

National celebrations will take place on the Queen’s actual birthday (April 21), and again on the weekend of the Queen’s official birthday (June 11-12).

The group would like to hear from individuals, families, carers and residential homes who may know Louth residents who will be celebrating their 90th birthday in 2016 too, and would like to be involved.

The April celebration ideas under discussion are tea parties and a public beacon-lighting ceremony, which will link to the nationwide beacon-lighting events taking place that evening.

The group are also looking into ways of supporting residents who would like to arrange parties in their street or community to join the national street party events being held on Sunday June 12. There will be a celebratory civic church service held on that date at 10am at St James’ Church, which will be attended by the Mayor and Councillors.

The Council will meet on the March 22 to discuss the group’s recommendations.
