MORE than 100 tables have been booked so far for Morecambe’s giant Jubilee Street Party on the prom on Sunday, June 3.

But many more families, schools, community groups, churches and businesses are welcome to join in the fun to celebrate 60 years of Her Majesty the Queen’s reign.

Organisers still hope to break the world record for the number of tables used at a street party.

And although David Croxall, town clerk at Morecambe Town Council, is playing down their chances, they are still expecting the row of tables to stretch from Thornton Road to Albert Road.

“We might not break the record but the most important thing is to bring the community together and bring people into the town on the day,” said Mr Croxall.

“A lot of people will be planning to book late or maybe come along on the day.”

To book your table contact David on 422929 or clerk@morecambe.gov.uk. Alternatively application forms are available from the town council website www.morecambe.gov.uk, Morecambe Town Hall, The Visitor office and 13 The Warehouse, Queen Street, Morecambe.

The party is set to start at the Eric Morecambe statue and will expand outwards in both directions.

All tables are to be set out by 10am on the morning of the street party due to health and safety. Alternatively there will be tables already set out from the Midland Hotel down towards the Battery which anybody can book at no extra cost. Guests can decorate their tables and businesses/organisations are welcome to advertise themselves.
