Commemorative coins commissioned by the council can be purchased to mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
Available to buy for £1 each, the limited edition coins – bearing the civic crest of Tendring District Council (TDC) – will serve as a memento for years to come of Queen Elizabeth II’s 70-year reign.
Meanwhile those planning a Jubilee celebration event in the district can apply now for an event pack to help organise their festivities.
Organisers can claim up to two free packs per event – with the potential for more upon request – with each pack including invites, posters, recipe and game ideas and other templates.
Jeff Bray, TDC Chairman, said he would love to see the whole of Tendring get involved in celebrating Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee.
“We hope these commemorative coins will be an affordable keepsake for generations to come, marking this historic year,” Councillor Bray said.
“Meanwhile these event packs will allow communities to mark the occasion now, and it would be fantastic to see street parties, picnics in local parks and other events held throughout the year to celebrate.
“Don’t forget to share details of your jubilee events with us too!”
The commemorative coins can be purchased from TDC’s leisure centres in Clacton, Dovercourt and Walton-on-the-Naze, and the Visitor Information Centre at Clacton Town Hall, and are expected to go on sale from 20 April – while the event packs will be available from the same date.
Apply for a pack online on the council’s Platinum Jubilee web page. Residents can buy up to six coins each.
