As we are sure you will be aware, the Queen celebrates 70 years on the throne later this year with events taking place over an extended Bank Holiday weekend between the 2nd and 5th June.
The Parish Council has purchased Union Jack bunting (yes, we know it’s only the Union Jack if it is at sea) for Hallgate and King Street, which will be going up in the coming weeks and we have also secured a £500 grant from East Riding Council, which will be given to the Thursday Market Traders/The Civic Hall in order to assist with the Street Party they are organising on the 2nd June in the Market Green. Cottingham Day, on the 3rd July, will also feature some Jubilee elements.
Further, the Parish Council is making £50 small grants available to those wishing to hold a Street Party in their areas. Please find below guidance from East Riding Council as well as our small grant application form.
