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.

A survey conducted exactly a month before the Diamond Jubilee found that Wandsworth is the borough that will be having the most street parties.
One hundred and sixty-four parties are set to take place in the borough over the weekend.
People will also be partying in Richmond, which came close behind Wandsworth with 163 parties.
The borough with the least number of street parties is Barking and Dagenham, with just five street parties confirmed.
