More and more plans are being drawn up as proud Salopians prepare to join in with The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, and Shropshire Council has a handy guide to help with party preparations.

Around 70 applications for street parties over the Platinum Jubilee holiday period, from Thursday 2 June 2022 to Sunday 5 June 2022, have already been received – but time is running out for people to make fresh applications.

All street party applications must be submitted by Friday 6 May 2022 to be processed in time.

Cecilia Motley, Shropshire Council’s Cabinet member for communities, culture, leisure and tourism, and transport, said:-

“The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee gives us a chance to pull together in our communities and celebrate not only this milestone occasion but all that is best about the places in which we live.

“There have been around 70 applications for street parties across the county so far, and people will need to be quick if they want to apply for permission in time.

“Our guide to organising a street party, fete, or Big Jubilee Lunch, to bring everyone together on this joyous occasion is truly a one-stop-shop. It has all the information you need and links to important sites too.

“It’s not too late to get a community event organised, and I would urge anyone thinking of doing so to visit our webpage Queen’s Platinum Jubilee | Shropshire Council to find all the answers they need.”
