The Queen plans birthday tour of Britain for when she turns 90 in April* | Daily Mail Online
Quote:
The Queen is to carry out a short tour of the UK to celebrate her 90th birthday.

In a scaled-down version of the Diamond Jubilee celebrations in 2012, Her Majesty will visit cities around the country to meet as many of her subjects as possible.

As The Mail on Sunday revealed last month, the Queen will also be conducting engagements on her actual birthday, April 21, including a walkabout in Windsor.

She will then light the Principal Beacon at Windsor Castle the first of 564 birthday beacons that officially mark the beginning of the celebrations.

For the first time members of the Army Cadet Force will light beacons on Ben Nevis in Scotland, Snowdon in Wales, Scafell Pike in England and Slieve Donard in Northern Ireland.

The Queen will then attend a private birthday party at Windsor Castle, hosted by Prince Charles.
I know that the Queen will celebrate her 90th birthday with two days of public engagements and a family party at Windsor in April because both the telegraph and the times have reported it, but I'm not sure about this so-called scaled-down version of the Diamond Jubilee tour because I don't believe in anything the mail/fail says.

MAkes me wonder what they will do when she turns 95.

Reminds me of Ol' Blue Eyes, but the music isn't as good.

The UK is planning a cleanliness drive to spruce up at least 12 areas of the country in time for Queen Elizabeth II's 90th birth anniversary celebrations later this year.

From hundreds of locations nominated by the British public, a so-called "dirty dozen" were chosen by the "Clean for the Queen" campaign, 'The Sunday Times' reported on Sunday.

The areas include riverbanks, verges, suburban roads, lay-bys and beaches due to their unmanageable litter problems.

The campaign is recruiting 1 million volunteers to pick up litter in their local communities on the weekend of March 4-6.

Suffolk's exciting plans to celebrate The Queen's 90th birthday with street parties and we have free tea for every event - News - East Anglian Daily Times
Quote:
It’s a milestone year for Her Majesty. The Queen, who has reigned over us all these years, is to celebrate her 90th birthday.

And Suffolk’s communities are set to mark the occasion with an exciting series of events and celebrations.

A symbol of continuity, stability and duty in an ever changing world, it’s as if she has always been there. And for most of us The Queen has been a constant through all our lives.

Born in 1926, The Queen, who succeeded to the throne in 1952, will celebrate her birthday on April 21 but her official birthday in June will be marked by a mass street party – The Patron’s Lunch – in London as well as a service of Thanksgiving at St Paul’s Cathedral and the traditional Trooping of the Colour ceremony.

Communities secretary Greg Clark said: “The Queen’s 90th birthday is a truly national event and provides a great change for all of us to reflect on the extraordinary service her majesty has given this country for more than six decades
Pictures from this article that shows the Queen when she still was doing her walkabouts:

Twice as many tickets will be made available to the public for a 90th birthday picnic with the Queen as had originally been promised.

The Patrons Lunch, which is being organised by the Queens grandson Peter Phillips, will have 2,000 tickets on offer when a public ballot opens today.

The organisers had originally said at least 1,000 of the 150-per-head tickets would be for the public, with around 9,000 available to the 600-plus charities of which the Queen is Patron.

Yesterday a spokesman for Mr Phillips denied that the additional release of public tickets meant charities were being put off by the 150 cost.

They insisted that around 1,000 tickets had been kept in reserve as a contingency and that the decision had been taken to sell them to the public.

Quote:
A town in Epping Forest will join hundreds of others around the country as it lights a beacon to celebrate the Queens 90th birthday.

Epping Town Council will light the beacon on April 21 as the longest reigning British monarch marks her birthday.

Queen Elizabeth II herself will light the first in the series at Windsor Castle, followed by more than 560 others around the country.

The Epping ceremony will be at the Frampton Road recreation ground.

The open event starts at 7pm and the beacon will be lit at 7.30pm.

Town clerk Beverley Rumsey said: Epping Town Council are delighted to be taking part in this important event and invite everyone to come and join us for what we hope will be a memorable occasion.

Its the kind of thing that children will remember for years to come.
Tea party in Wellingborough in honour of the Queen's 90th birthday - Northamptonshire Telegraph
Quote:
People in Wellingborough are invited to a tea party being held to mark the Queens 90th birthday.

With the support of Nene Valley Community Action (NVCA), Wellingborough mayor Barry Graves will be holding a tea party‟ at the Tithe Barn from 1.30pm to 4pm on Thursday, April 21.

Cllr Graves said: This is an important event to mark the Queens milestone birthday and I am proud to be part of the celebrations.

This will be a wonderful opportunity for Wellingborough to be able to mark the occasion by bringing people together.

Other activities taking place on the day include performances from Northamptonshire Carers Choir, Ukulele Crew and Croyland School Choir.

Judging of the local primary schools portrait of the Queen‟ art competition will also take place.

Helston to celebrate Queen's 90th birthday (From This is The West Country)
Quote:
Deputy mayor Gillian Geer suggested the town should hold an event, telling her fellow town councillors: "I think it would look really bad if this council could not be the people that push forward to have some sort of birthday celebration."

She added it was important to "get on with it", saying: "I think we need a street party, we need to put up flags, we need to get the band organised. I think we need to get as many things as we can to show we appreciate a really important person."

It was felt there was not enough time to plan something for the Queen's actual birthday in April and the town should instead aim for an event to mark her 'official' birthday in June.

The Royal Mint's Queen's 90th birthday medal competition
Quote:
The Royal Mint is looking for young designers across South Wales to enter a competition to design both sides of a very special medal - lucky winners will have their design struck in bronze for presentation to Her Majesty The Queen to wish her a very happy 90th birthday.

The Royal Mint Museums Education Manager, Lucy-Ann Pickering said: This is a fantastic opportunity for the primary schoolchildren of South Wales to show off their talent for design. We are asking for both a heads and a tails image for the medal, which should take inspiration from The Queens long reign, and show something of her personality, or perhaps feature her interests or hobbies.

Winners will not only have their design struck onto a bronze medal for presentation to The Queen, but will also receive copies of the medal for themselves and their school as a memento of their achievement. They will also be invited to tour The Royal Mints new Visitor Centre in Llantrisant, South Wales with their families, and win a free visit and workshop at the Visitor Centre for their primary school class.

David Cameron and Boris Johnson set aside their EU differences to 'clean for the Queen' - Telegraph

Some of this long article:
Quote:
Conservative politicians David Cameron and Boris Johnson have put their differences to one side and joined the cast of the Archers and Women’s Institute members to urge Britons to clean the UK for the Queen’s 90th birthday.

The national Clean for the Queen initiative takes place next weekend on March 4, 5 and 6 when over one million people are expected to clean their neighbourhoods ahead of the Queen’s birthday on April 21 and her official birthday in June.

Government ministers and nearly 100 MPs from across the House of Commons have pledged their support and many will be taking part in litter picking events in their constituencies over the weekend. More than 200 local authorities are getting involved and promoting special events.

The campaign has even inspired producers of the BBC Radio Four soap "The Archers" to create a litter picking event in the fictional village of Ambridge, while local Women's Institute groups are joining in with a group in Suffolk sprucing up dirty road signs.

Janice Langley, who chairs the National Federation of Women's Institutes, said: “As the founders of Keep Britain Tidy in 1954, the NFWI are very proud to be supporting the national clean-up ‘Clean for The Queen’ in March.

"WI groups all over the country are organising events in their communities to support this initiative.

"HM The Queen, a WI member and President of Sandringham WI, played a very important role in the WI Centenary celebrations last year, and we are delighted that members are taking part in her birthday celebrations.”

Community groups, local authorities, housing associations, high street retailers such as John Lewis and M&S, Costa, McDonalds and Greggs, schools, Guides, Scouts and Cubs groups are taking part across the UK.

Adrian Evans, the campaign director, of Clean for The Queen, said: “The response to the campaign has been truly inspiring. We have hundreds of thousands of people taking part and we want everyone to get involved.

"There is still time to get together with friends, neighbours or work colleagues andorganise an event. If everyone picked up a single piece of litter, it will make a difference.”

Forget-me-nots and cornflowers which traditionally flower in April, the month the monarch was born, and in June, the month of her official birthday, respectively have been chosen to decorate the Royal Collection Trust pieces.

We wanted to put out something that was a little bit different

something that was much more personal and delicate

If Philip is alive by then, the focus will probably be on his birthday as he would turn 100
