CROWDS gathered in Mablethorpe as the 60th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth’s accession to the throne was officially announced last Monday morning.
The new town crier for Mablethorpe, Trusthorpe and Sutton on Sea, Roy Palmer, made his call at 11.30am at the Mablethorpe War Memorial.
Also present were representatives from the Mablethorpe Royal British Legion and the town’s Mayor, Irene Burnett.
It was exactly 60 years to the day since Queen Elizabeth’s reign officially began.
The actual diamond jubilee holiday is not until Tuesday, June 5, when a thousand boats will take part in a special parade along the River Thames in London.
There will be lots of events going on locally too.
