Are you holding a street party to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee?

The Recorder wants to hear from people who will be marking the monarch’s 60 years on the throne with a special community event.

On the Bank Holiday weekend of June 2 to June 5, Havering will be joining the rest of the country in putting up the red, white and blue bunting.

Ninety-two residents have applied to hold street parties. They had until Tuesday, May 1 to get their requests in to Havering Council.

Letters from the council will be sent out in the next few days confirming whether they have been successful in their applications.

Havering is not the only borough that will be rolling out the red carpet to mark the milestone.
