More than 63 years of service from HRH Queen Elizabeth II tomorrow. I am sure we can all agree this is a most wonderful feat from a most wonderful monarch. Are there any events planned to celebrate this in Lewes?

Whatever you think of the institution of monarchy, she's worked hard, never let the side down and hasn't been allowed to retire. The Queen is a hostage of fortune - wealthy, but certainly made to sign for her supper. I think that whatever your standpoint is, you should acknowledge that she's tried hard to do her duty.

The longest reign is an immensely historic occasion and I am sure from whatever position we can agree on her immense contribution to the unity of this country and her service
