On the morning of Saturday 11th June 2016 the town of Loftus will host a Parade and a Service of Thanksgiving to celebrate HM The Queen’s 90th Birthday and all are welcome to attend!
Civic and community leaders will join the Mayor of Loftus and the Mayor of the Borough of Redcar & Cleveland, in Loftus Town Centre to witness cadets and members of uniformed organisations, from across Teesside, parade through Loftus at eleven o’clock in the morning. Following the parade, a muster and a formal inspection will take place outside of Loftus Town Hall, which will then be followed by a special Service of Thanksgiving in Saint Leonard’s Parish Church Loftus, where the Bishop of Whitby will deliver the sermon.
The Deputy Lieutenant of North Yorkshire Mr David Kerfoot MBE DL will be attending the events in Loftus to formally represent HM The Queen.
Father Adam Gaunt, Rector of Loftus said, “Following the highly successful Parade and Service of Thanksgiving held in Loftus to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee in 2012, there was a real desire to see something equally special take place within our community to celebrate Her Majesty’s 90th Birthday. The Parade and Service of Thanksgiving will be open to everyone and I look forward to sharing this special day with our community and with cadets and uniformed organisations from across Teesside.”
