Queen’s 90th celebrations

The Queen’s 90th birthday celebrations

Band concert

In 2016, to mark the 90th Birthday of Her Majesty the Queen, the Parish Council organised a concert by the Altofts and Normanton Brass Band on the Village Green. There was a large and enthusiastic crowd who enjoyed the wonderful performance and in spite of ominous black clouds the rain managed to hold off until almost the end of the programme.

It was a great success, and even before the concert ended we were being asked if we would arrange another one. This is now going to be an annual event and information will be on the website once the date has been arranged. The only thing we cannot guarantee is the weather!

Birthday border

As a more lasting tribute to the longevity of our Queen, the Parish Council commissioned the creation of a new flower border on Alwoodley Lane.  Once again this border was designed for us by Amira Gardens.  It is hoped that the location of the border will deter some indiscriminate parking that has been happening at the entrance to one of the footpaths leading to Eccup reservoir.
