Search light Beacons used for Croydons Diamond Jubilee celebrations
Croydon prepares to celebrate the diamond jubilee
Thousands will take to the street this weekend to celebrate the Queen’s diamond jubilee.
Croydon Council has received more than 130 applications for street parties; including 94 road closure requests and more than 20 applications to hold parties in parks and green spaces.
Every school in the borough will be planting a tree in her honour and Wandle Park has been nominated to become a designated Queen Elizabeth II park, to preserve it for future generations.
Search light beacons will also light up the evening sky in Norwood Grove, in the north of the borough, and at Coulsdon Memorial Park in the south.
