Scores of communities are preparing to celebrate the Queen's platinum jubilee in the coming weeks - with nearly 200 street parties planned.

Suffolk County Council says it has approved 185 community events between Thursday, June 2 and Sunday, June 5. 

Thousands of people will gather together to mark the Queen's 70 years of service. It comes as the countywide celebrations continue with the Festival of Suffolk.

The approved celebrations are made up of smaller street party events on roads and cul-de-sacs which will be held by residents and community groups, as well as bigger events organised by town, parish, borough and district councils.

Due to the unprecedented demand for events taking place across the bank holiday weekend, Suffolk County Council waived fees for events taking place not only on Sunday 5 June, referred to as the ‘Big Jubilee Lunch’, but also on Thursday 2, Friday 3 and Saturday, June 4.  

The waived fees are associated with costs related to road closure applications and traffic management, such as signs and barriers.

Paul West, Suffolk County Council’s cabinet member for Ipswich, operational highways and flooding, said: “This milestone for Her Majesty, The Queen is an incredible achievement and I am delighted that so many communities across Suffolk are joining together with their neighbours and celebrating this momentous occasion.

“By waiving fees for events across this weekend of celebration, we were able to encourage as many as possible to get involved, whether it be a small gathering in a local street, or a larger event, organised by town or parish councils. 

“Our highway teams have worked tirelessly to approve as many of these events as possible and will be working with communities to ensure they can carry these events out safely and successfully.”
