At a meeting of Enderby Parish Council Recreation and Amenities Committee on Wednesday 8th February, it was decided to solicit residents’ views as to how Enderby should mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
Ideas including the planting of a commemorative tree or the erecting of a plaque were discussed but a proposal was put forward to offer parishioners the opportunity to suggest a suitable way of commemorating the event.
To this end, it was decided to poll residents via local media and the Parish Council’s own website.
The occasion marks 60 years of the Queen’s reign and celebrations centre around an extended weekend on 2, 3, 4 and 5 June.
The Queen came to the throne on 6 February 1952 and her coronation took place on 2 June 1953. She celebrated her Silver Jubilee (25 years) in 1977 and her Golden Jubilee (50 years) in 2002. The only other British monarch to celebrate a Diamond Jubilee was Queen Victoria in 1897.
Anyone wishing to contribute a suggestion can use the Response box here on Enderby EYE (bottom of this page*) or comment on the Council’s website.
Alternatively, you can write to the Council – addressed to
Ms. S Hansford
Clerk to the Council,
