Queen’s birthday invitations up for grabs
The Governor and his wife are encouraging the public to apply for invitations to the Queen’s 90th birthday party.
Entry forms for the event, on Thursday, June 9, between 6pm and 8pm, can be found on the Government House website and Facebook page from tomorrow, until noon on Monday, May 2.
It follows an enthusiastic response to the decision to open up the birthday party last year.
Governor George Fergusson said in a statement: “Last year we decided to open up the Queen’s birthday party to a far wider range of the community than in previous years.
“Those who were successful in their applications were excited to have the opportunity to attend the Queen’s birthday party and we were very pleased to be able to share this special event with them.
“We are again inviting anyone who would like to attend this year’s Queen’s birthday party to complete the online entry form.
“Sadly, the numbers can’t be unlimited but we shall make a good proportion of invitations available to those applying. By tradition, a number of senior public officers and members of the Houses of the Legislature and Judiciary are invited. This will be an occasion to enjoy the gardens of Government House, and the Band of the Bermuda Regiment.
“This year’s Queen’s birthday party will not only celebrate the 90th birthday of the Queen but also be special for my wife and me as it will be our last in Bermuda.”
