Community champion Alison Drake will attend the Queen’s coronation 60th anniversary service at Westminster Abbey in London next week.

Alison, chairman of Castleford Heritage Trust, has been invited to the service on Tuesday June 4, which will be attended by the Queen and Prince Philip, in recognition of her work for the community.

Alison said: “I feel very honoured and humbled really, because there are so many people behind what we are doing, who work very hard and do so much.

“It’s nice for the trust to be represented. I feel excited to go, because it’s a unique occasion.”
