Deputy Lord Lieutenant calls on East Lancashire to celebrate Diamond Jubilee

A NEWLY-appointed Deputy Lord Lieutenant of Lancashire is calling on people from all walks of life to come together for the celebration of the Queen’s Jubilee this summer.

Kam Kothia, a member of the Lancashire Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Committee, said the onus was on community leaders to realise the potential of the occasion.

He is particularly calling for members of the Asian community to get involved.

So far only 10 applications for street parties have been processed by councils in East Lancashire although dozens of other events are being organised.

Mr Kothia said: “A big part of what makes this country great is the service and sacrifice of our Queen, so it is only natural that we would want to celebrate the occaision.

“This is a tough time for the nation, and the Queen’s Jubilee celebrations give us all an opportunity to put a smile on everyone’s faces.”

With Her Majesty set to visit Accrington and Burnley in May and the 2012 Olympic torch relay passing through the region in June, Mr Kothia is hopeful that neighbourhoods will be out in force to witness the events.

“It really is fantastic news for the area, and I am sure that all our local communities will be going out on the day and giving Her Majesty a really warm Lancashire welcome,” he added.

Streets in Blackburn that will be closed off for parties include French Road, part of Infirmary Street and New Bank Road, along with Osborne Terrace in Darwen.

Gina Lambert, traffic technician at Blackburn with Darwen Council, said: “We’ve had quite a few enquiries and we’re expecting a lot more closer to the time. We already have more planned than for last year’s Royal Wedding.”

In Burnley, Eldwick Street, Scott Park Road and Brunshaw Avenue are planning parties along with Albert Street and Waterside Mews in Padiham.

Hyndburn Borough Council have only received one application, although more than 40 packs for street parties have been distributed.

In the Ribble Valley, Chatburn’s playing fields, which were commissioned in recognition of the Queen’s ascension to the throne 60 years ago, will play host to an array of Jubilee events, including a cricket match, a Big Lunch picnic, a barbeque and a sports day.

Events in Pendle Borough include open air lunch and music in Walverden Park, Nelson, entertainment at St John’s Methodist Church, Colne, a 12-hour Party in the Park in Laneshawbridge and a street party in Leyland Close, Trawden.

Community group Fence United will also be hosting a black tie Diamond Jubilee Ball among a series of other festivities in Fence village.

Rossendale Borough Council is not formally organising any events and has had no street applications so far, despite small grants being available to encourage potential hosts.

Sadly I could only just afford a cheap card and present for my mother's birthday. So I am certainly not going be able to afford or be in the mood to celebrate the Queens remarkable achievement of being born royal and inheriting her power, privilege and wealth.

you can like the queen all you want but Britain does not have a queen, it would appear Queen Elizabeth II has her own realm upon these lands and the reason our constitution is not upheld :

Royalty as it stands in the UK is an an anachronism with the people regarded as subjects instead of equal citizens, with a Royal family which is basically a German import and fawned upon by cronies around the throne who crave recognition with an honours' system no longer fit for purpose. As ever, we should look to Scandinavia to see how monarchy should be treated just as we should look to their societies to see how life should be organised to produce happy citizens - even their tax payments are open for all to see! No - celebrate if you want but a little more thought should be given to the whole background to the jamboree.

Noiticer, I have read your comments re 'the jamboree', and given them a little more thought.

I'm more than happy to be living in a Constitutional Monarchy such as ours.

For all sorts of reasons it is all down to personal opinion.
You have yours re the jamboree, which I respect, and I have mine re the Jubilee.

Let’s take a look at the Queen herself before we decide if we can afford such luxuries like partie's whose face is emblazoned on currencies and stamps worldwide. According to Who Owns the World by Kevin Cahill, the Queen is the legal owner of 6,600 million acres of land that equals one sixth of the earth’s non-ocean surface. She is the only person on earth who owns whole countries and who owns countries that are not her own domestic territory. This land ownership is separate from her role as head of state and is different from other monarchies—like Norway, Belgium, and Denmark, where no such claim is made. The value of her holdings is approximately £33T, more than the estimated value of all of the earth’s natural resources which is estimated to be £20T.
Well my friend's or subject's unless she's paying for me to celebrate her birthday am other wise busy having to work scrape toil and scrounge in some cases enough to put on the real table just to stay alive.

Happy Birthday Maam.YAWN.

"He is particularly calling for members of the Asian community to get involved."

Why divide this on community lines? I noticed in the similar report in 'Asian Image' Kam Kothia says "We Asians do not need any excuse to get together for some samosas and a nice biryani?"

We Asians? If there is a 'We' who is the 'Them'?

Are we not all British? If you identify yourself with continent of your birth then you must be European. If you identify yourself by the continent of your ancestors then 'We' are all Africans with humanity having originated from the Rift Valley.

dudes dudes dudes....this country Great Britain does NOT HAVE A MONARCH.

This Queen took a different oath therefore upholds whatever realm that oath represents.....

Queen Elizabeth II is the queen of the statutory corporate dictatorship of the world, including Russia and China.

That said she is only the figurehead for the Committee of 300, it is they who protect the House of Judah, the Twelve tribes elect, and yes they are all in it together... and we are the Goyim, the cattle and they aim to treat us as such.

Freemasonry has become a mere puppet in the hands of the elites blinded with wealth and power without any care for this country....

I immediately picked up on the "...particularly calling for members of the Asian community..." and is at the heart of racism. Kam Kothia said it and I picked up on it. We're both racist in our own way -him for calling on a particular section of society, and me for resenting what I assume (rightly or wrongly) him showing some bias towards people of his own race.
