Plans are coming together in Fife to celebrate Her Majesty’s historic 70 years reign and if you’re planning on organising an event, we’ve set up a handy website to help you make yours safe and successful.

Paul Vaughan, Head of Communities explained: “It’s expected that many people up and down the country will be celebrating The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee this year, especially across the four-day UK bank holiday weekend, from Thursday 2nd to Sunday 5th June.

“We’ve already begun our celebrations with three tree-planting events taking place in Cupar, Dunfermline and Kirkcaldy as part of The Queen’s Green Canopy (QGC). This is a unique tree-planting initiative created to mark Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee which invites people from across the United Kingdom to “Plant a Tree for the Jubilee”.

“We’re also planning to hold a Beacon Lighting Service in Levenmouth on 2 June, which will be open to everyone, and a Jubilee Afternoon Tea hosted by the Provost for nominated guests at the Glen Pavilion in Dunfermline on 3 June.

“The theme is 70 so we’re looking to invite people who are celebrating their 70th birthday in June as well as anyone celebrating their 70th wedding anniversary this year.

“To be considered please either fill in the online form, alternatively, you can email civic.office@fife.gov.uk, call 03451 55 55 55 ext. 440336 or write to:

“The deadline for nominations/applications is midnight on Saturday 30 April and we’ll draw the lucky names on Saturday 7 May. Invites will then be sent out on Monday 16 May.

“We’d love to see Fifers get involved in the celebrations too, so we’ve pulled together a webpage with a list of Frequently Asked Questions as well as information about what you need to do to hold a safe and successful event.”
