Queen’s Platinum Jubilee

In 2022, Her Majesty the Queen will become the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee, seventy years of service, having acceded to the throne on 6th February 1952 at the age of 25. The occasion will be marked nationally in a number of ways, culminating in the Platinum Jubilee Weekend, to be held from 2nd to 5th June.

The Town Council is making arrangements to recognise this achievement & also support the Queen’s Green Canopy Scheme through the planting of memorial trees &, subject to agreement from Allerdale Borough Council, the enhancement of the Green adjacent to the Fairy Path at Sea Brows, Maryport, with the planting of a Fairy Dell & installation of children’s Toadstool Ring.

In addition, the Town Council owns a number of benches in the area & it will be inviting members of the public to submit requests for the provision of memorial plaques for loved ones as a part of its Platinum Jubilee programme.
