The Queen celebrates her 90th birthday this year

Celebrations for the Queen’s 90th birthday will take place across the area.

Residents have already been involved in the ongoing ‘Clean for the Queen’ campaign to get people to spruce up their communities.

On her official birthday, Littlehampton Twon Council will be lighting a beacon as part of a national network of beacons that will be set ablaze as darkness falls on April 21.

Her unofficial birthday celebrations take place on the weekend of June 11.

Arun residents wishing to organise a street party by way of celebration are being encouraged to do and there are a few simple guidelines to follow.

They need to make an application to Arun District Council up to six weeks in advance of the proposed treet party.

If the party is private and for residents only, they do not need Public Liability Insurance or a formal Risk Assessment.

If they intend to sell alcohol and/or food at your event they will need to apply to Arun District Council for the relevant licenses.

Larger groups and organisations wishing to hold public events should contact the Arun events team for more information at or call 01903 737920.

Councillor Andy Cooper, chairman of Arun District Council, said: “Organising a street party is a great way to bring a community together, to meet people you have perhaps never spoken to celebrate this key event in our history.”
