The Queen at 90



Happy Birthday to Her Royal Highness the Queen, who is 90 years young today.

Her Majesty's accession to the throne was in February 1952 and she was Coroneted in 1953.   Her 64 year reign makes her the longest serving British Monarch of all time, surpassing Queen Victoria's 63 years and 7 months, which ended in 1901.

The celebration of the Queen's Birthday will be held on Thursday 12th of May to Sunday 15th May.
For details see: The British Monarchy Website

Long may Queen Elizabeth II continue to reign.

A hundred thousand new users



We started counting New Residents born into London City a few years ago and not from the very beginning.  So although this is not an all time record, it is a modern day record.

And today we reached a milestone, the 100,000th New Resident in London City.

And here he is!

Thank you JuicyBalls for making the 100,000th new resident a memorable occasion for everyone.

Springtime in London City



London City West

It was the best fun since Christmas, arguably event better!  There was no need to buy presents or to visit long lost relatives usually only wheeled out for weddings and funerals.

But here in the UK, four days of rest and relaxation with the odd tipple here and there, has finally come to an end :(

Looking on the bright side, the clocks moved forward on Sunday morning and we gained another hour of daylight as we were propelled into Springtime. It seems amazing that in January we were adjusting to night time starting at just after 4pm, whereas today, dusk will be at 8.03pm

And for many people, this is just a 4 day working week, so not long to wait until the next weekend!

Looking forward, there is another Bank Holiday at the end of April and by then, dusk will be at 9.10pm and here London City SL, the first of the beach parties is just around the corner!

Judith Durham and The Seekers



The Seekers are an Australian up-tempo folk/pop quartet, formed in 1962.

They were the first Australian pop group to achieve major chart and sales success in the United Kingdom and the United States.

The group had Top 10 hits in the 1960s with "I'll Never Find Another You", "A World of Our Own", "Morningtown Ride", "Georgy Girl".  "The Carnival Is Over", is still one of the top 50 best-selling singles of all time in the UK.

Reformed in the late 1990's, The Seekers are still regularly performing.  However due to the ill health of lead singer Judith Durham, the band is currently performing farewell tours.  Currently The Seekers are performing in New Zealand, with other dates all around the world announced later this year.

Enjoy The Seekers in London City on Easter Saturday.   Party starts at 1pm SL time (8pm UK) with the show an hour later.
