DENBIGHSHIRE County Council have received ten requests to host events for the forthcoming Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

With Queen Elizabeth II set to celebrate 70 years on the throne, and become the first British monarch to do so, people around the country are set to honour the occasion with street parties and other events across the four-day Bank Holiday weekend in her honour.

Her Majesty The Queen is just the third monarch to reach this milestone, after King Louis XIV of France and Rama IX/King Bhumibol of Thailand.
