PARTY planning residents in the district are being offered a helping hand to celebrate The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
Residents looking to organise a street party for the celebrations over the four-day Bank Holiday weekend (Thursday June 2 to Sunday June 5) can apply to Warwick District Council (WDC) for a road closure and advice on holding a successful, inclusive event.
The council has also launched the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Fund totalling £10,000 with grants of between £250 to £1000 available to registered voluntary and community organisations and parish councils to support their plans.
The fund can be used to pay for bunting, signage and decorations and to assist with the implementation of road closures and traffic management.
WDC leader Andrew Day said: “Her Majesty The Queen has selflessly served the country and the Commonwealth for an incredible 70 years of her life. This unique moment in history is worthy of a fantastic celebration, and I’m delighted that the council can offer its help and support to ensure that our residents can come together and celebrate, particularly after what has been a difficult couple of years.”
