Beacons lit for Queen’s birthday in March and Chatteris
March and Chatteris will join communities across the country tomorrow in lighting a beacon to celebrate the Queen’s 90th birthday.
The spectacle will begin at St Peter and St Paul’s Parish Church in Chatteris at about 7pm.
The Salvation Army band will play some patriotic tunes and the Town Crier will read a message from Clarence House, written by Prince Charles, before Chatteris Mayor James Carney lights the beacon at 7.30pm.
The celebrations start in March’s West End Park at 7.30pm, ready for the official lighting of the beacon by March Mayor Rob Skoulding at 8.30pm.
There will also be a hog roast and refreshments in the park, provided by George’s bar, and live music until 9.30pm.
Birthday cake will be shared in Wisbech Market Place tomorrow at 5.30pm.
