Street Parties Planned for Queen's Birthday

Local communities are being invited to celebrate the Queen's 90th Birthday on June 12th 2016 by holding 'Patrons Lunches' all over Tunbridge Wells. The Tunbridge Wells Borough Council is understood to have agreed to support modest funding through the 16 local parish and town councils, although it is hoped that this small pump-priming grant will encourage individuals or organisations to provide further sponsorship in kind or cash.

The event will draw to a close a weekend of celebrations which include a national service of thanksgiving at St Paul's Cathedral on 10th June followed by Troouping the Colour on Saturday the 11th June. The Duke of Edinburgh will celebrate his 95th Birthday on Friday 10th June.
