A beacon will be lit at Grantham’s Dysart Park on Thursday to celebrate Her Majesty The Queen’s 90th birthday.

Co-ordinated by South Kesteven District Council, Dyart Park Action Group and Grantham Rotary Club, the event will also feature live music, hog roast and other refreshments, children’s rides and a Creation Station.

Families are invited to take along their own battery-operated torches to join in when the beacon is lit at 8.30pm.

They will also be able to send a message to The Queen. Action group member Hannah Martin said: “We are inviting people to write their messages on slips of paper at the Dysart Park Action Group stand – the action group is then having made a giant birthday card which will be sent to The Queen with everyone’s messages written inside.”

The event is on from 6pm-9pm, with the beacon being lit at 8.30pm, in parallel with hundreds of similar events across the UK.
