Join in jubilee fun in Midlothian

Midlothian communities are being invited to join in The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations.

It is 60 years since Her Majesty succeeded to the throne, and four days of commemorative events are planned for the beginning of June.

National festivities will begin with a day at the races when The Queen attends the Derby at Epsom on Saturday, June 2.

It is hoped that local people will hold Jubilee lunches on Sunday, June 3, when families, friends or neighbours can gather to celebrate the 60th anniversary in a relaxed and friendly manner.
