HRH Queen Elizabeth

On Saturday 4 June 2022 Bridlington RNLI are to celebrate HRH Queen Elizabeth’s 70-year reign on the British throne by holding a Queens Platinum Jubilee Street party.

Her Majesty The Queen has been Patron of the RNLI since 1952 and has officially recognised the efforts made by hundreds of RNLI volunteers towards saving lives at sea by awarding them in her twice yearly honours lists. But unofficially, Her Majesty has recognised the efforts of hundreds more volunteers in person during all the RNLI events she has attended over the years.

Bridlington RNLI are to celebrate in style, Coxswain Steve Emmerson said: 'We’d welcome everyone to come along and enjoy a very British Street party atmosphere, with music from the decades of the Queens reign, there will be live music to dance to, tea, coffee and soft drinks, plus Bridlington Gold Radio will be broadcasting ‘live’.'

The fun starts at 10am and finishes at 4pm

Steve Emmerson added ‘So get flasks out, prepare those sandwiches, cook those sausage rolls and head down for a fun day with our charity, don’t forget your union flags to wave and finally your sunblock creams as hopefully the sun will shine.'
