PLATINUM Jubilee celebrations kick off next month with the nation coming together to commemorate the Queen.

This year, Her Majesty The Queen will become the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee after 70 years of service.

Residents across Slough and Windsor will be getting involved in celebrating The Queen's historic reign in the run up to the June bank holiday weekend (June 2 to 5).

The four day summer celebration gives residents a chance to share their memories and stories of what they love most about the Queen.

This also means lots of street parties, garden bbq's and events to visit across the borough.

Many neighbourhoods will be lining the streets with Union Jack bunting and serving their best picnic food.

There are so many events planned across the boroughs, including Windsor's big lunch on the Long Walk and Castle Hotel Windor's special afternoon tea. Or you can attend the Big Breakfast event in Slough.

The Windsor Observer asked its loyal readers to share what their plans are in the run up to the celebrations.

Tracey Belcher said: "Im going out for an afternoon tea, but its my birthday that day."

The team at Slough Outreach, a homeless support service, will be holding a Big Breakfast event in celebration of the Queen's Jubilee.

Shin Dhother said: "Slough Outreach we are looking forward to celebrating queensjubilee by holding Big Breakfast Event on Sunday 5th June in Slough town from 10am"

Karen Rose will be celebrating by "going to party at the Palace on the 4th whooo." 

Unfortuantely for Pauline Corbett, she will be working "on a night shift so will be sleeping during the day." 

But for many, it will be all hands on deck in celebrating the monarch's 70 years on the throne.
