The Queen's 90th Birthday Beacon and Fireworks
Ingatestone and Fryerning Parish Council celebrated the Queen’s 90th Birthday last Thursday with a multi-church service, beacon and fireworks display. The Mayor of Brentwood attended the event and had the honour of lighting the specially designed rose-shaped beacon and Starburst treated the attending parishioners to an amazing red, white and blue aerial firework display. The event was a collaboration between the Parish Council, who funded the event, and the Church of England, Catholic, United Reformed and Elim Pentecostal Churches. St Edmund and St Mary’s Church hosted the service which was attended by the Mayor, Deputy Mayor, Borough and Parish Councillors, Parishioners and members of the Girl Guiding Associations. Almost 200 people attended the event and joined in the celebratory atmosphere with renditions of Happy Birthday throughout the evening.
Welcome to Ingatestone and Fryerning
The villages of Ingatestone & Fryerning in Essex are located between Brentwood and Chelmsford. Despite a population of nearly 5,000 and rail and road links to London and the north, the area retains a rural atmosphere and the villages are surrounded by Green Belt, farmland, ancient hedgerows and woods.
Fryerning is the smaller village and, apart from some changes to properties, has remained largely unchanged for many years. The network of public footpaths and bridleways makes it easy to enjoy this picturesque area. Ingatestone is the larger village containing shops for most needs, churches, schools, doctor’s surgery, library, post office, railway station, pubs and restaurants. There are two conservation areas in Ingatestone containing several listed buildings.
Ingatestone & Fryerning Parish Council is the largest in the borough of Brentwood...
