Bungling council advises booking Dame Vera Lynn, who is 103 years old, for the Jubilee party.
The late Dame Vera Lynn has been suggested by a BUNGLING council for a town’s approaching Queen’s Jubilee celebration.
At a committee meeting last week, Bicester Town Council addressed the event, and according to the agenda, Dame Vera “had approached Bicester Town Council to be included with Armed Forces Day,” and it was recommended “to contact her.” Last year, though, Britain’s renowned wartime Forces’ Sweetheart passed away at the age of 103.
Despite the fact that the beloved singer has never sung the song, the meeting stated that “her song Gone with the Wind is one of the Queen’s favorite tunes.”
The listing was a “administrative error,” according to the council, and the agenda should have read “Vera Lynn Tribute act.”
“The music “Gone with the Wind” was requested from another source — these two items were never related,” an authority representative told Oxfordshire Live.
“This was just an administrative error, which was accepted and will be included in the meeting minutes when they are released.”
The paper has since been taken down from the council’s website.
The plans for the Platinum Jubilee, which will take place on February 6, 2022, were considered.
Dame Vera Lynn, one of Britain’s most well-known entertainers, died in June of last year at her home in Ditchling, East Sussex, accompanied by her family.
She is most known for singing We’ll Meet Again, one of the most well-known songs from the Second World War period. It struck a chord with soldiers preparing to fight in the combat.
