Birthday beacon to be lit
RUSHDEN will be lighting up the night skies in honour of the Queen’s 90th birthday next week.
To celebrate the birthday, The Prince of Wales will invite Her Majesty The Queen to light the Principal Beacon on Thursday April 21 at Windsor Castle. A chain of more than 1,000 beacons will then be lit throughout the country.
Rushden Town Council will be lighting its beacon in Hall Park at 8.30pm and a local resident similarly celebrating a 90th birthday has been invited to do the task.
Music and merriment will be on offer during the evening from 7.30pm. Residents are invited to go along to be part of this unique, historic occasion.
