North Northamptonshire Council (NNC)will host a ‘Big Picnic Lunch’ event at Wicksteed Park to commemorate Her Majesty the Queen’s 70 years of service.
Families and community groups are all invited to join the celebrations which will take place on Sunday 5 June at the park in Kettering.

Our teams are working hard on plans for our ‘Big Picnic Lunch’ at Wicksteed Park and we’ll be making more announcements in the coming weeks and months. It certainly will be an event not to be missed and a great opportunity for families and friends to come together to celebrate Her Majesty’s 70 years of service.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the team at Wicksteed Park for their support.
