Celebrating the Queen’s 90th birthday

Celebrating the Queen’s 90th birthday

 

As you may well be aware in 2016 the country will be celebrating the Queen’s 90th birthday. There will be various events in London, in June and at Windsor in May. However Ponteland Town Council wish to invite and challenge you to consider how you could help Ponteland to celebrate what must be regarded as a joyous occasion. Any type of contribution to mark this event would be appropriate at any time of the year during 2016.

 

The Town Council will be lighting a beacon on her actual birthday April 21st in conjunction with various other bodies throughout UK. Indeed Ponteland was among the first if not the first to confirm that they would be lighting a beacon on that day. We also we will be joining formally with St. Marys as a council to mark the day. We are also considering what other events such as a fireworks display that we could actually sponsor around that April day to mark the event.

During the year we have also decided that our entry will in honour of this event concentrate the displays around the traditional red white and blue colours.

 

We hope that you could find some way of helping the community to mark this event.

 

If you have a business located in Ponteland we hope that you could find some way of helping the community to mark this event. There is always our Ponteland in Bloom for which we would welcome sponsorship for displays or other forms of support.

 

These could include hanging baskets, window boxes or special displays. It may be that some organisation or persons may be considering a more tangible memorial and you could contribute.

 

As an individual you may wish to hold a street party or you may be considering a more tangible memorial you could contribute.

 

It may be that you could come up with an idea or scheme that all businesses could support and we could co-ordinate the response.

 

Please do not feel restricted by these suggestions but whatever you do will be greatly welcomed.

 

It is our hope that you will give this challenge your careful consideration and find it possible to make a positive response. I would be grateful if you could let us know what you decide to do and we will ensure that it is properly recorded in our records and PNV.

 

We very much look forward to hearing from you to discuss your ideas with you.
