Fenland District Council has honoured The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee by installing the first of four new commemorative benches in the district.

The first bench marking 70 years since Her Majesty’s accession to the throne was installed in St Peter and St Paul’s Church gardens in Chatteris.

Further hardwood benches will be installed in the Garden of Rest in Whittlesey, Octavia Hill in Wisbech and Trinity Church Memorial Garden in March in the next few weeks.
