As the nation prepares for a 4 day celebration of the Platinum Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II, we would like to add our congratulations on this momentous occasion.
The Queen has ruled for longer than any other Monarch in British history, becoming a much loved and respected figure across the globe. Her extraordinary reign has seen her travel more widely than any other monarch, undertaking many historic overseas visits. The world has seen many social changes since the Queen first ascended the throne but the one constant has been her unswerving dedication to duty and devotion to a life of service.
The Queen sees public and voluntary service as one of the most important elements of her work and has links, as Royal Patron or President with over 600 charities, large and small. These links provide vital publicity for the work of these organisations and allows their enormous achievements to society to be recognised.
Her Majesty supports and encourages achievement in all walks of life through the annual programme of Investitures, Garden Parties, receptions and other awards given in her name, which allow her to say 'thank you' to all those who have contributed to the life of the nation and the Commonwealth.
The Jubilee celebrations will be our turn to say thank you to this amazing monarch who has never waivered from the pledge she made on her twenty first birthday that 'her whole life whether it be long or short shall be devoted to your service'
God save The Queen.
