North Woolwich will next weekend become one of the first places in the country to demonstrate its loyalty to The Queen and her 60 years as our monarch.

More than 200 homes in the community have been invited to attend a special service at St John’s Church and Centre in Albert Road, North Woolwich.

The main celebration events are of course in the summer but the church is marking the actual annniversary of Queen Elizabeth II’s 60 years on February 6 with the service 24 hours earlier.

The service takes place from 11am to 12.15pm on February 5. Councillors and representatives from Richard House Hospice, and one of the chaplains to The Queen, the Rev Anne Easter will be be attending.Congregation member Derek James will give the sermon

A church spokesman said: “Please come and join us and make this a celebration for the whole community. We are all fellow citizens and all The Queen’s subjects. Let us honour her together.”
