By the end of the month new railings will be erected along the River Nene in Elwyn Road ready for the celebrations to begin on the bank holiday Monday.

At 9.30pm on June 4 March Brass 2000 will play in West End Park, where a hog roast will be provided - partly sponsored by Sainsbury’s.

At 10.15pm a celebratory beacon will be lit in the park - just one of more than 4,000 being lit across the country to mark the Queen’s 60 years on the throne.
