Herefordshire gets ready to welcome the Queen
9:51am Tuesday 10th July 2012 in News
Excitement is building ahead of the Queen's visit to Hereford tomorrow.
Up to 25,000 people are expected to join in with the July 11 Diamond Day celebrations with events on the King George V playing fields from 8.30am to 4.30pm, including a procession and a 1,200-strong royal serenade.
The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh are due to arrive at Hereford railway station at 10am, head to Cathedral Close for 10.15am and then onto the King George V playing fields.
The Royal party will leave Hereford at 11.15am.
Due to the inclement weather, parking arrangements are altered slightly - there will be no disabled parking on the playing field itself. All disabled parking will be in Wye Street Car Park, on a first come first served basis.
One of the free park and stride car parks at the Rowing Club is unusable. Stewards will be on hand to redirect drivers, but Asda is still allowing its car park to be used as a drop-off zone for the day.
If the playing fields should flood, the show will be moved to Hereford Racecourse.
To mark the day, Herefordshire Council has put together a commemorative booklet as a souvenir, which is on sale in city shops for £2 each.
