Bradford Urged To Celebrate The Queens 90th Birthday

One Britain One Nation Campaign has been launched in hope that West Yorkshire will come together to celebrate the monarch's landmark birthday.

Dignitaries from across Yorkshire gathered today to launch a new campaign that aims to unite Britain to celebrate the Queens 90th birthday.

The organisation One Britain One Nation are urging people of all faiths, races and background to come together to mark the monarch's landmark birthday this year while celebrating what it means to be British.

The Queen turns 90 in April but will celebrate with the nation on the 10th of June. OBON plans to bring together the school children of Bradford at 11am to wish her Majesty a Happy Birthday and sing the national anthem while waving the British flag.

The Lord Mayor of Bradford, Cllr Joanne Dodds said: "We want the community to come together and celebrate the Queen, she is the longest serving monarch, as Mayor I know how hard she works and she is just a wonderful state head. Bradford are leading on this and we hope to gather the nation."

David Pearson, a Deputy Lieutenant in Yorkshire said: "Hopefully we will get together to have a great deal of fun and say well done to her Majesty for putting duty first and self second. Britain is an enormous and diverse community, we want everyone that makes up Britain to show we are a united kingdom and that the people of Britain are united in doing that."
