Mayor hails great turnout for jubilee tea party
More than 100 people turned out for a special jubilee afternoon tea party with the Mayor of Dudley to honour the Queen.
The event yesterday (Wed) at Dudley Town Hall was open to residents celebrating their 70th birthday between Feb 6 and June 2.
The Mayor of Dudley, Sue Greenaway, said:
It’s a privilege to be serving as Mayor during the Queen’s jubilee year, and we thought that hosting a tea party for people turning 70 during the 70th year of her reign would be a fitting tribute.
We had a fantastic turnout with more than 100 people there, and I had a lovely afternoon meeting a lot of new people.
The tea party is among a host of activities the council is organising to celebrate the jubilee.
Other events include the lighting of a beacon at Dudley Castle on June 2 and the waiving of fees for road closures for streets hosting street parties. More than 50 applications have been approved by council bosses.
