Beacon Lighting to celebrate Queen's 90th birthday
Thu, 21 Apr 2016 18:30
There is a long and unbroken tradition in our country of celebrating Royal jubilees, weddings, coronations and special birthdays with the lighting of beacons - on top of mountains, churches and castle battlements, on town and village greens, farms, country parks and estates, and along the beaches surrounding our shores. The last major beacon celebration was on Her Majesty The Queen's Diamond Jubilee on 4th June 2012.
There will be a further opportunity to celebrate on Thursday 21st April 2016, when beacons will be lit throughout the United Kingdom, Channel Islands, Isle of Man and UK Overseas Territories in celebration of Her Majesty The Queen's 90th Birthday that day.
We will be lighting the beacon - next to the Church - at approximately 7.30pm.
The Church will be open and our Women's Institute will be serving drinks and cakes. The bell-ringers will also join in the celebrations when the beacon is lit.
There will be restricted parking - only cars with disability permits will be able to drive up the hill.
Venue: Breedon Priory Church - Contact Clerk for more information
