Like many other towns and villages across the country, Weston-super-Mare will be hosting a traditional British event to celebrate the Queen’s 90th birthday.

Weston Town Council has decided to throw an old-fashioned picnic in the park to mark the occasion and everyone is invited.

The authority is hosting the picnic in Grove Park and is inviting the entire community to get involved.

There will be live music performed in the bandstand, children’s craft activities, a balloon man and puppet show.

The event, which will be free to join, is being held at the park in Grove Road on June 12 from 2-4.30pm.

Anyone wishing to participate should take their own picnic, although Grove Park Café will be open.
