Mrs Joan King celebrated her 90th birthday on Thursday, 21 April 2016, the same day as Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth celebrated her 90th birthday. They were born within 20 minutes of each other.
Mrs King’s family held a party at Necton Community Centre on Saturday and Cllr. David Matthews, Chairman of Necton Parish Council, paid a surprise visit to present to Mrs King a commemorative medal, especially commissioned for the unique event of HM Queen Elizabeth II 90th birthday. The Parish Council also presented a bouquet of flowers to Mrs King.
This 32mm solid gilding medal, presented in a bespoke royal blue gold embossed card surround within a protective perspex case has been produced exclusively for schools and councils and not available generally.
