An LGA meeting in November heard concerns about town and parish councils, but these local bodies can help build community and civic pride, writes the chief officer of the Cheshire Association of Local Councils in an article for the LGC. Click HERE to access the full article.
Bruno Peek, Pageantmaster, has written to ChALC with information about this very special event, which has been shared with councils across the Cheshire, Warrington, Halton and Trafford areas. The Guide To Taking Part in this event is available to view and download from www.queensjubileebeacons.com The Guide is regularly updated on their website at the end of each month as more and more communities, individuals and organisations etc, join the event over the forthcoming months. Councils are asked to register their involvement before 30th May 2022. The beacon lighting and associated activities will take place throughout the United Kingdom, Channel Islands, Isle of Man, UK Overseas Territories and, for the first time, in each of the Capital Cities of all the Commonwealth Countries on 2nd June 2022.
This could well be the last chain of beacons lit during The Queen's reign, so the Pageantmaster is keen to make it the largest and most dramatic the world has ever seen. Councils are therefore being encouraged to achieve this by taking part in lighting a beacon at 9.15pm on 2nd June 2022.
