Lighting of the Beacon - Monday 4th June at 10.15pm

Monday 4th June in the evening, we will be lighting the Beacon at Riccall Park at 10.15pm (this is the time given to us as part of the National lighting ceremony). There is a long and unbroken tradition in our country of celebrating Royal Jubilees, with the lighting of beacons. In 1897 beacons were lit to celebrate Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee and in 1977 and 2002 beacons were also lit to celebrate the Queen's Silver and Golden Jubilees. As part of the Diamond Jubilee, communities up and down the country will be joining the celebration by the lighting of beacons. It is fitting that Riccall Parish Council lights the beacon at Riccall Park to give thanks for the Queen's reign. Everyone in the village is welcome to join us by walking up to the park with a lantern, where the beacon will be lit at 10.15pm and there will be a toast to Her Majesty the Queen.
