North Yorkshire gets out the bunting for the Diamond Jubilee
12:01am 4th June 2012
More than 50 street parties across North Yorkshire are getting out their tables and chairs in time to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
Officers in North Yorkshire County Council’s highways team have worked alongside residents in many towns and villages to ensure the events go without a hitch. The council has arranged formal road closures to allow the parties to take place.
The events will see bunting erupt across North Yorkshire over the coming bank holiday from residential side streets to almost entire villages.
“This will be a fabulous opportunity for people to come together for a great community celebration on this historic day,” said County Councillor Gareth Dadd, Executive Member for Highways.
“Our highways teams have worked hard with party organisers to make sure that the road closure process has been understood by all. The result is that North Yorkshire has a tremendous range of parties planned – both in urban areas and in smaller rural communities.”
