Mayor Parties For The Queen

The Mayor of Dudley is encouraging people to have parties in their communities to celebrate the Queen’s 90th birthday.

Mayor of Dudley, Councillor Mohammed Hanif, is personally handing out party bags sponsored by Dudley Market Traders and Dudley Council, to people who have organised street parties this month in honour of Queen Elizabeth II’s official birthday on June 11th. The bags contain union flags, red, white and blue party hats and balloons.

Meanwhile, an exhibition at Dudley Archives and History Centre will centre on the Queen’s life and birthday and is on show until 30th June. The centre is located on Tipton Road, Dudley.

On June 26 during Armed Forces Day at Himley Hall, the D-Day Darlings will be encouraging people to wave union jacks and join in with patriotic songs such as Royal Britannia, Land of Hope and Glory as well as Happy Birthday in tribute to our Monarch. Also on site at Himley will be a vintage tea room where people can enjoy a quintessentially English afternoon tea and cake.

Throughout June celebrations are continuing across the borough with schools, charities, guide and scout groups, community centres and individuals hosting their own events.

The Queen was born on the 21 April 1926 and Dudley Council took part in a national celebration at Dudley Castle where a beacon was lit on 21 April this year. Mayor of Dudley, Councillor Mohammed Hanif, said:

“This is an amazing year for Queen Elizabeth II and we are delighted to be able to support our communities to host street parties. I hope everyone gets a chance to celebrate at an event near to them.

“This year, The Queen has become our longest reigning monarch and I would like to take this opportunity to wish Her Majesty a very happy birthday on behalf of Dudley residents.”
