Warwickshire County Council (WCC) will be re-sharing photos online that are submitted by residents celebrating the Platinum Jubilee weekend on social media.

Share your Jubilee photos on Twitter or Facebook with the hashtag #BestWarwickshire for a chance to be featured on the county council’s social media channels.

WCC leader Coun Seccombe said: “The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee is a historic, once in a lifetime event, and on behalf of the County Council I would like to extend our sincerest congratulations to The Queen on this most momentous achievement.

“Warwickshire has hosted many royal visits by The Queen and her predecessors in the past, and this is a great opportunity to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee across the county through an inspiring variety of events and activities, providing a much-needed sense of unity, community, and togetherness.”

The Lord Lieutenant of Warwickshire, Mr Tim Cox, who is the Queen’s representative in the county, said: “I would like to congratulate The Queen on her Platinum Jubilee this year.

“She has continued to serve our country for over seven decades, and this amazing achievement as our longest reigning Monarch is unlikely to ever be repeated.

“This extraordinary milestone is also a great opportunity for local communities to get together to celebrate this wonderful achievement, especially as the power of our communities working together is such a strong part of Warwickshire life.”
