Call for East Lancashire folk to support Queen’s Jubilee celebrations

Lancashire Telegraph: HAPPY AND GLORIOUS The Queen chats to fashion students at the UCLAN Burnley campus HAPPY AND GLORIOUS The Queen chats to fashion students at the UCLAN Burnley campus

COMMUNITY leaders have called on people to keep up the spirit shown during the Queen’s visit and get involved in Diamond Jubilee events.

Hyndburn Council leader Miles Parkinson said he hoped residents, who showed up to cheer on the Queen in huge numbers, will continue to show patriotism for upcoming events.

And former Burnley Mayor, Coun David Heginbotham, who also met the Queen, said: “East Lancashire will defin-itely benefit from the visit.

“People have been focused on the area and will be looking to see what’s going on around here.

“They will be thinking that there is something special happening in Burnley and Accrington and they will want to be a part of it.”

Coun Parkinson said the council had planned an entire ‘Summer of Celebration’ to mark events such as the Jubilee weekend in June, and the Olympic torch coming to Lancashire.

The council is also hoping for record applications for street parties.

Hyndburn earned itself the nickname of ‘most patriotic borough’ in East Lancashire after scores celebrated the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton with street parties in their neighbourhoods.

Coun Parkinson said: “There was such a spirit of enthusiasm in welcoming the Queen to Accrington, and we would like to see that continue.

“We have barely started our Summer of Celebration and we want to see everyone getting involved.

“There will be details on our website and numerous events on the townships’ noticeboards in the coming weeks.”

There are some queer folk living in the UK these days - no idea about history or what happened in the days of war time when the Royal Family stayed in London because they felt it was important to support the citizens through all the bombing. The queen deserves our support and has worked hard throughout her reign and she brings in more money to this country than any other business.

It really sickens me to read the negative comments regarding the Royal Family.
You people have no knowledge of history. The Queen,is Head of State,and as such does not have the power to veto the Politicians,who over the years have ruined the Country.
How many of you who have made negative comments have worked for 60 years ? I can answer that one for you,some of you won't have worked for 60 weeks.
If you don't like it clear of to another country which is run to your liking.
I'll hang around for a few years,because you'll still be here posting negatives,because that country dosn't exist.

It seems that the Establishment lickspittles only allow pro-monarchy comments on here so there is not much point asking us for our comments is there?

False, abusive, malicious? I don't think so - just the truth, which some people cannot tolerate.

Do people not realise that Royalty evolved from the most vicious, most violent and most oppressive bullies who happened to win battles and steal land! Not long ago a certain king murdered his wives.... It's all a big con to fool the masses yet again!!

My loyalties are to my fellow man. Not the Roayal family!
