Lighting the beacon in Corby Glen for HM The Queen’s 90th Birthday

On 21st April, Corby Glen marked the Queen’s 90th birthday with a beacon lighting ceremony on the village green. Residents gathered at the Church Street Rooms for sparkling wine and birthday cake, before processing up to the beacon. Reverend Stephen Buckman addressed the crowd, including a message from Clarence House, regarding the Queen’s birthday. This was followed by the beacon being lit, assisted by two members of the 1st Corby Glen Beavers, Cubs & Scouts Group. It was good to have the Corby fire crew there who are looking for new recruits to join the team.
