Throughout her 60 years on the throne, the Queen has shown herself to be dedicated, selfless and committed in her service to the British people and public life. Many people in Suffolk recognise this, and Dan was delighted to see so many families, friends and people of all ages coming together to pay their respects to the enormous contribution the Queen has made during her reign.
Dan joined the celebrations at a number of local events in Suffolk over the long Bank Holiday weekend. One of his highlights was joining residents in Christchurch Park in Ipswich for a special Jubilee parade and service led by the Ipswich branch of the Royal British Legion, followed by live music and a torchlight procession.

Dan is a keen supporter of our brave Armed Forces, and of the Royal British Legion, and thoroughly enjoyed joining the parade.
