COMMUNITIES across Devon have putting up the bunting in preparation to celebrate The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
The Lord-Lieutenant’s Office is encouraging everyone in Devon to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee Weekend, with hundreds of events ranging from traditional street parties and lunches to Jubilee markets, fun days, and galas being planned.
Many of these celebrations are taking place on streets in Devon’s communities – and to date more than 160 streets will be temporarily closed to traffic to enable the festivities to take place. The application fees for these closures have been waived.
The Lord-Lieutenant of Devon, David Fursdon, said: ‘This will be a weekend to bring people together, to spend time and reconnect with our neighbours as well as celebrate Her Majesty The Queen and her wonderful contribution to our country for the last 70 years. ‘I am proud to represent Her Majesty in Devon, which is a county in which she has shown a continuing interest over the years and when I have met her. ‘She has been a constant in my life and has set an incredible example of service to her people throughout her reign, which the Platinum Jubilee gives us an opportunity to celebrate. ‘I love the way that she can combine the formality of her position with the twinkle of her personality.’
