Queen Elizabeth's visits to Warrington

Recommended Posts

She probably stopped off at mine for a quick brew last time she came but sadly I missed her as I was out from first thing putting our flags and bunting up near town :D

Here's a photo of Queen Eliz and the Mayor Clr Harold Edwards during her 1979 visit to the Golden Square to unveil the commemorative plaque.  I have a better photo somewhere which I'll try and find.

Is the plaque still there as I don't ever remember seeing one anywhere in there.

I remember her first flying visit in 1968. Part of her 'Operation Springclean' tour. I can still see her marigold gloves when she waived from the car window.
