Caistor will be lit up this evening (Thursday) to mark the Queen’s 90th birthday.

Caistor Town Council and Caistor Goes..events committee have joined forces to light a beacon in the nationwide chain to celebrate this royal milestone.

Once lit, the celebratory beacon, on Riby Road, should be visible from at least five counties.

Lighting will be at approximately 8.15pm - dusk - with the Mayor of Caistor, Coun Carol MacKenzie, and Chairman of West Lindsey District Council, Coun Angela Lawrence, lighting the beacon.

The beacon will be sited on the vacant site between the former Montessori School and the houses.

Grateful thanks go to Jonathan Gibbons of Holton Estates for permission to use the site, and to Hansard Haulage who will be placing the Christmas tree block to safely seat the beacon.

The beacon lighting will last for about an hour and all are welcome.

Riby Road will be open to traffic as normal, to avoid complicated diversions, and Lincolnshire Police will be assisting to ensure safety, along with Caistor Goes... and Town Council volunteers.

People are requested to stay behind barriers and not to park in the vicinity of the beacon or viewing area.

Parking is available in the Caistor Yarborough Academy Car park; gates will be locked at 10pm.
