Celebrating the Queen’s birthday in Brightling

On TuesTheQueenday 19th Thursday 21st April 2016, there will be a beacon lighting at the Needle (Mount Farm).  This is part of a national beacon lighting programme on that day.  Further details will be available nearer the time.

The Parish Council has decided to commemorate the Queen’s forthcoming 90th birthday by planting an oak tree on the triangle at the Mount.

There will probably be a planting or opening ceremony of some sort for the new tree – to be arranged.  This will probably be on the same evening as the beacon lighting.
