The Queen’s 90th birthday was celebrated across the generations in Mold. An afternoon tea party for eight Mold residents who are the same age as the Queen, was hosted by Mayor of Mold, Anthony Parry, at Llys Jasmine. Guests enjoyed meeting one another and members of the Town Council over cake and tea.

Children from the primary schools in Mold created drawings about the royal birthday and chose four to go on the front of a giant birthday card. The card, measuring nearly 90cm by 60cm, was made by specialist packaging company Smurfit Kappa from Maes Gwern in Mold.

The giant card was a central feature in the Mold birthday event, ‘Music Through the Decades’ on Daniel Owen Square, and is now absolutely full of messages and signatures from well wishers. At the event over 500 people enjoyed a fabulous extravaganza of live music and dance performances representing the decades of the Queen’s long life.

Mayor of Mold, Anthony Parry, said; “The giant card has been very well received by the townsfolk of Mold. It’s now being sent to Her Majesty at Buckingham Palace and her staff have assured us that the card will be brought to her attention. I’d like to thank all of those involved in making such a wonderful initiative happen, especially Smurfit Kappa for making the card and the children from our four primary schools for taking part and demonstrating their artistic talents.”
