Organisers of the Queen’s 90th birthday celebrations in Ringwood are inviting Ringwood residents who are celebrating their 90th birthday in 2016 onto a ‘Top Table’ at the event as guests of the Mayor.
On the 12th June the Town Council will be providing seating for 2000 people along with musical entertainment, fair rides and fun for everyone attending.
Working with Churches together there will be a free cake and drink for those with tickets and those people also celebrating their 90th will get commemorative certificate of the event and a photograph.
Organiser Mandy Oldfield said ‘we need people to come forward who have their 90th birthday this year and would like to be guests on the top table, we want to make this as memorable an event as we can for everyone’.
Local businesses have already come forward to help fund tables, decorations, flags and entertainment for this very unique once in a life time event.
Mayor of Ringwood Councillor Michael Thierry said ‘this will be a very special event which may never be repeated again, I hope people will join our celebrations and give themselves a very special memory’.
While the event is free to attend only those with tickets will be able to sit at the tables provided and they will be available for collection from the end of April, but people will be able to bring their own picnic tables and chairs.
Over 200 volunteers have already signed up for ‘Clean for the Queen’ which will see local residents helping to clean up open spaces in the town, remove graffiti and help those in need.
