Jubilee Celebrations

Three street parties will be among festivities being held in Saltburn to mark the Queen’s diamond jubilee on Monday, 4th June.
They are in Irvine Ave, Marske Mill Lane and Eden Street, all of which will be blocked off to cars during the parties.

Marske Mill Lane will be closed to traffic along its length between Victoria Terrace and Victoria Road from 11.30-3pm while Eden Street will be closed between 1- 7pm.
One of the organisers said the council’s contractor wanted residents to pay £265 for signs, but subsequently agreed to them providing their own signs.
