THE QUEEN’S 90TH BIRTHDAY CELEBRATIONS

Her Majesty The Queen is 90 this year and as part of the celebrations Burgess Hill Town Council is inviting Burgess Hill residents to write their birthday wishes to Her Majesty in a special leather bound book.  The book will be available at the Town Council offices at 96 Church Walk from Tuesday 29th March until Friday 3rd June to coincide with The Queen’s official birthday.  The book will then be forwarded to The Queen for her to read everyone’s birthday messages.  
There is long tradition of celebrating Royal jubilees, weddings, coronations and special birthdays with the lighting of beacons and there will be a further opportunity to celebrate on Thursday 21st April 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.
Burgess Hill Town Council will be lighting the Beacon in St John’s Park in the evening of Thursday 21st April from 7 – 8pm.  Burgess Hill school choirs and Burgess Hill Marching Youth will be performing at the Beacon Lighting.  Residents are invited to come along to St John’s Park to enjoy listening to the performances.  The Mayor of Burgess Hill, Anne Jones MBE, will light the Beacon.
