Appeal for beacons

An appeal has gone out for six beacons to be lit across Broxtowe on June 4 to mark The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

To mark the celebration, the council is hoping six beacons will form part of Nottinghamshire’s target of 48 beacons, and the National target to light 2,012 or more beacons.

A number of local groups and individuals have already expressed an interest and the council has developed a new web page to help support and promote any events. Visit www.broxtowe.gov.uk/jubilee with information on setting up a beacon site, street parties, event planning and more.
