The arch behind the Town Hall is to go up a little earlier this year to help decorate Newtownards in time for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Celebration.

Orangemen from the town will also decorate the streets with flags and bunting on Wednesday 25th May, ahead of the official weekend of Jubilee celebrations from 2nd-5th June.

This year’s arch will feature a special banner highlighting our Queen’s 70 years on the throne.
