Happy Birthday from BurnhamOn the 21st April Her Majesty the Queen celebrated her 90th birthday. The Town Council obtained permission to light the town's beacon, located on Riverside Park, and Deputy Town Clerk Sarah Grimes prepared for the evening.
Vice Chairman of Maldon District Council , Henry Bass, and other invited guests enjoyed a buffet and a glass of wine at Burnham Sailing Club whilst the public gathered at the beacon and enjoyed listening to Rayleigh Brass. The band were on top form. The last time in Burnham they played mainly 40s dance band music but in recognition of the occasion they gave a mini Proms performance with Rule Britannia being a firm favourite with the friendly crowd. There was plenty of singing and lots of flag waving.
The highlight of the night was Mayor Ron Pratt being hoisted to the beacon in Scott Parson’s cherry picker to light the beacon, accompanied by a fire-fighter for safety, the band played a suitable fanfare. It was alight promptly at 8.30 and the Anthem was played followed by Happy Birthday and She’s a Jolly Good Fellow.
The Mayor invited all back to the Sailing Club for a buffet, wine, teas and coffees and cake.
On the following morning Ron Pratt and Deputy Mayor Helen Elliott went to our two primary schools to present each child with a commemorative coin, funded by the Town Council
