On Sunday 12th June 2016 Felixstowe Town Hall will be opening its doors and welcoming residents and visitors to enjoy Tea and Cake as part of official celebrations for the Queen’s 90th Birthday.
From 11am, the Mayor of Felixstowe, Cllr Jan Garfield and her fellow Councillors will be on hand to welcome people to the vintage-style tea party. Visitors will be able to meet the Mayor, have a cup of tea and slice of cake in the Town Hall and enjoy the Town Hall Gardens and wonderful views across the sea. Admission is free.
On the same day, Felixstowe’s Beach Huts and Chalets Association will be offering refreshments from beach huts at various locations from the Brackenbury Dip to Martello Park and fundraising for Felixstowe Coastwatch and the Felixstowe Volunteer Coast Patrol Rescue Service.
The huts and chalet taking part are at Manor End (No. 9); Spa (No. 39); Undercliff Road (No. 188); Brackenbury Cliffs (No. 830 and No. 925) and Bath Tap Chalet (No. 14).
The Queen’s actual birthday was on 21st April and the town celebrated the occasion as part of the Seafront Gardens event ‘Music in the Gardens’ on Sunday 24th April, with the Town Council’s Youth Forum providing funding towards music at the event.
Town Council was also instrumental in leading the Clean for the Queen initiative locally. On Saturday 5th March 2016, the Mayor of Felixstowe together with a team of Councillors, volunteers and representatives from Felixstowe Sea Cadets, spent the morning clearing a large amount of litter and detritus from the alley behind the Library to Hamilton Road.
In response to the Town Council’s call for action, several other of the town’s community groups and organisations took to the streets and Cleaned for the Queen. Felixstowe Town Council would like to thank all that took part – you can read about their efforts on the Town Council website here: www.felixstowe.gov.uk/community-clean-for-the-queen
