Across the country, on the evening of 21st April, 2016 - the 90th Birthday of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II - beacons were lit. These images were taken at Clarborough Beacon when Phil Gibson, Chairman of Clarborough & Welham Parish Council, was joined by fellow councillors to mark our local recognition of this historic moment.
