Unofficially, Her Majesty has recognised the efforts of hundreds more volunteers in person during the RNLI events she has attended over the years.

Coxwain Steve Emmerson said: “The Bridlington RNLI team will celebrate in style.

“We welcome everyone to come along and enjoy a very British street party atmosphere with music from the decades of the Queen’s reign.

“There will be live music to dance to, tea, coffee and soft drinks, plus Bridlington Gold Radio will be broadcasting ‘live’.

“So get flasks out, prepare those sandwiches, cook those sausage rolls and head down for a fun day with our charity.

“Don’t forget your union flags to wave and finally your sunblock creams as hopefully the sun will shine.”
