LUDLOW is preparing to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in June.

The year marks 70 years on the throne for Queen Elizabeth II.

This will be commemorated with an exhibition to be held in St Laurence Church.

In preparation an appeal has been made for any photographs of Royal visits to the town.

If anyone has any photographs then it is asked that they can be taken to Poyners in Broad Street so that they can be copied ready to be put on display.

The commemoration is being organised by the Ludlow War Memorial Fund.

Royal visits to Ludlow have been few and far between.

The late Princess Margaret visited the town in the early years of the old Ludlow Festival and Prince Charles came more recently to see the civic garden adjacent to St Laurence Church.

Queen Mary, the Queen’s grandmother also came to Ludlow in the early years of the last century.
