Haverhill to host tea party in honour of Queen’s 90th birthday
A tea party to celebrate the Queen’s 90th birthday will be held in St Mary’s Churchyard, Haverhill, from 2.30-5.30pm on Sunday (June 12).
It will include tea, a limited number of free cakes, entertainment, family activities and the chance to take part a unique photography project which will aim to take portraits of Haverhill residents born in every year of the Queen’s life from 1926-2016.
Nick Keeble, arts and leisure manager, said: “The plan is to have a family-friendly event to celebrate the Queen’s 90th birthday. As well as providing fun and free cakes, we are looking to take photographs of 90 Haverhill residents which will form part of an historical project.”
Funding for the event has also been allocated from locality grants by St Edmundsbury Borough councillors Tony Brown and John Burns.
