Residents are being encouraged to organise big street parties to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in June.
Norwich City Council has produced a street party application pack to make it easier for residents to apply for road closures during their celebrations.
A spokeswoman for the council said: “To mark The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, we will be lighting a beacon at City Hall as part of a series of beacons to be lit across the UK.
“We have also produced a street party application pack for local communities who want to apply for a road closure for a street party over the weekend, which is a great way to meet friends, neighbours, build community spirit and join in the celebrations.”
Many other events have already been planned in the city to mark the historic occasion. A flower festival is being held at Norwich Cathedral from June 1 to 4 and children at Hellesdon High School are preparing to create a jubilee time capsule containing newspaper cuttings, photographs and memories from ordinary people.
Celebrations outside of the city will include a big street party in Acle and a competition to design a new monument in Attleborough.
The Bishop of Norwich, the Rt Rev Graham James, said: “There is potential for worship and fellowship and I hope that our churches will be at the forefront as I see this as an excellent opportunity for mission and service.”
The event will be only the second Diamond Jubilee in 1,000 years of monarchs.
