Queen and Duke of Edinburgh to visit Warrington on May 17
11:34am Tuesday 8th May 2012 in News
THE people of Warrington are being urged to support the Queen’s visit to the town next week.
She will visit Orford Park on Thursday, May 17 to officially open the newly named Orford Jubilee Park.
Clr Terry O’Neill, leader of Warrington Borough Council, said: “The excitement is really building ahead of the Royal visit later this month and we hope as many people as possible come out to give her a warm Warrington welcome.
“It’s going to be a really special day that local people will remember for years to come."
On the day hundreds of children and young people from nearby schools will be providing old-time dance and sport displays and while a 1950s style street party will take place outside the new community cabin on site.
Crowds will be entertained by a series of choirs and musical performances around the park while some Marines will abseil off the roof of the hub building.
The Queen will tour the newly completed £30 million hub building, taking in the new café, library and learning spaces before officially opening it to the public.
The Duke of Edinburgh will then help school children bury a time capsule at the site.
From the following day, Friday, May 18 Orford Jubilee Neighbourhood Hub will be open for business.
