That’s the combined age of the 13 guests who will sit with the Town Mayor of Ringwood at the Queens 90th Birthday celebrations on Sunday 12th June so far.

The event which is a free ticketed Street Party will also include live music from a brass band and a choir of 150 singers playing nostalgic songs for people to join in with.

There will be fair rides and stalls including large Ferris Wheel and Street Entertainment for the kids with free squash and cakes provided by Ringwood Churches Together along with a Puppet Show.

Organiser Mandy Oldfield said ‘it’s been wonderful the way people have come together and challenging in getting 2000 chairs and 330 tables together which we haven’t yet finished. Let’s just hope it’s a sunny day’.

The event has been supported by the Town Council and local businesses and people are expected to bring their own picnic to the Market Place to enjoy the two hours of entertainment being provided.

The Town Mayor of Ringwood, Councillor Michael Thierry, said ‘I take great pride in our town and I am very pleased that we can show our support to her majesty on this very memorable occasion and provide an event to our residents at the same time’.

Tickets for the event have almost gone but the Town Council invites people to bring their own picnic and sit on ground or bring folding seats to enjoy the afternoon and squeeze in where they can.

There will be a road closure in place throughout the day to ensure people can safely participate in activities and the High Street will be decorated with flags, balloons and bunting.
