Cllr Tony Rooth, lead councillor for housing and social welfare, said: “The Queen is so popular and respected that many Guildford residents want to celebrate her 90th birthday on April 21. Our social centres at Park Barn and Shawfield in Ash are holding special lunches and being entertained to remember and enjoy Her Majesty’s birthday.

“This is a great celebration and our centres have many events going through each week. At Park Barn and Shawfield we ensure that visitors have the opportunity to enjoy a whole range of fun and interesting activities including pool, snooker, line dancing, Wii bowling, arts and crafts, and more.

“Both our centres also have regular special events such as bread tasting supported by a local bakery, intergeneration bake osffs with their local primary school, a women at war theme day with entertainment and pie and pint lunch to name but a few at Shawfield in April and May.
