Caistor Town Council and the Caistor Goes.... Events Committee have joined forces to mark The Queen’s 90th birthday.

They will be lighting a beacon as part of a nationwide chain of celebration on Thursday April 21.

The beacon will be sited in Riby Road, on the area between the former Montessori School and housing.

The beacon will be lit at dusk, around 8.15pm, by the town’s mayor, Coun Carol MacKenzie.

“The lit beacon should be visible from at least five counties,” said chairman of the Caistor Goes.... committee Alan Caine.

“We are grateful to Jonathan Gibbons of Holton Estates for permission to use the site, as we are to Hansard Haulage who will be placing the Christmas tree block to safely seat the beacon.

“Riby Road will be open to traffic as normal, to avoid complicated diversions so please be guided by police and volunteers, and car parking is available at Caistor Yarborough Academy.”!
