Queen's Platinum JubileeCommunities have been encouraged to enjoy a Big Jubilee Lunch during the borough's celebrations for the Queen's Platinum Jubilee.

The Big Jubilee Lunch aims to bring residents together over the extended, four-day bank holiday weekend which runs from Thursday 2 June to Sunday 5 June.

And Rugby Borough Council has invited communities to stage street parties and celebrations in the borough's parks and open spaces to mark the historic event.

On 6 February 2022, Her Majesty The Queen became the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee after 70 years of service.

A year of nationwide events has been organised to mark the milestone, with a focus on June's Platinum Jubilee Central Weekend.

Residents and communities who want to organise a celebration can visit www.rugby.gov.uk/jubilee for advice and information on organising a street party or gathering.

You can download a street party application form and also apply for a temporary road closure. Applications for temporary road closures must be received by 8 May 2022.

And the council has pledged to donate 20 metres of jubilee bunting to residents organising a street party or gathering - just email talkinthepark@rugby.gov.uk for more details.

Application forms for street parties and temporary road closures can be found at www.rugby.gov.uk/jubilee
