From The Queen’s English:
Excitement over the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee is mounting with tens of thousands of street parties set to take place across the UK to mark the occasion over the long bank holiday weekend. At least 12 million people will be attending Jubilee parties and events on village greens or in local venues for the Queen’s 70th anniversary on the throne, adding that the figure is a “modest” estimate.
On Thursday, 2 June, the celebrations will kick off with Trooping the Colour, with members of the Royal Family due to appear on the Buckingham Palace balcony for the fly-past.
There will be a traditional service of thanksgiving at St Paul’s Cathedral the following day.
God Bless the Queen! #platiumjubilee #70years

It doesn’t matter whether your car is in better than new condition, or perhaps it’s a less than perfect unrestored gem, we love them all! As long as it can be safely driven down the road, this is a great opportunity to show off your favorite car and take advantage of what British car motoring is all about.
Meanwhile, if you want to drive your car and need some ideas for places to go . . . Plan on joining us for the Atlanta, IL Cruise-in and Poker Chip Run on June 4th! Drives, pop-up street show, car collections and more! https://facebook.com/events/s/cbcf-atlanta-il-cruise-in-car-/1318354025270623/
