Council invites communities to come together for the Queen's Platinum Jubilee

COMMUNITIES have been encouraged to enjoy a Big Jubilee Lunch during the borough's celebrations for the Queen's Platinum Jubilee.

The Big Jubilee Lunch aims to bring residents together over the extended, four-day bank holiday weekend which runs from Thursday 2 June to Sunday 5 June.

And Rugby Borough Council has invited communities to stage street parties and celebrations in the borough's parks and open spaces to mark the historic event.

On 6 February 2022, Her Majesty The Queen became the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee after 70 years of service.

A year of nationwide events has been organised to mark the milestone, with a focus on June's Platinum Jubilee Central Weekend.

Residents and communities who want to organise a celebration can visit www.rugby.gov.uk/jubilee for advice and information on organising a street party or gathering.

You can download a street party application form and also apply for a temporary road closure. Applications for temporary road closures must be received by 8 May.

And the council has pledged to donate 20 metres of jubilee bunting to residents organising a street party or gathering - just email talkinthepark@rugby.gov.uk for more details.

Tom Kittendorf, Rugby Borough Council chief officer for leisure and wellbeing, said: "The Big Jubilee Lunch gives us the opportunity to come together as friends, neighbours and communities to celebrate the unique milestone of the Queen's Platinum Jubilee.

"We want to make organising street parties, and gatherings in our parks and green spaces, as simple as possible, so have created a straightforward application form for holding street parties and reduced the notice period to request a temporary road closure.

"If we can support your plans to mark the jubilee, please get in touch."

Application forms for street parties and temporary road closures can be found at www.rugby.gov.uk/jubilee
