A parade of dignitaries and local groups left the Civic Offices at 10am and made their way to Christ Church for a special service to celebrate the event. At noon the parade made their way back to the Clock Tower where thousands of members of the public were gathered. ‘Jerusalem’ and ‘God Save the Queen’ were sung before speeches were made by Ross Paton, Chairman of Bexleyheath Business Partnership, by Rev. Francis Jakeman, vicar of Christ Church, by the Mayor of Bexley, Cllr Sharon Massey, and by the Deputy Lieutenant, Major David Hewer.

The Deputy Lieutenant then pulled the Union Flag which had been covering the south side of the Clock Tower to reveal a bronze bust of Queen Elizabeth II, sculpted by Frances Segelman.
