Buckingham Palace Garden Party 2020 Nomination Form

Please use this form to nominate your Current Chairman or Mayor to attend on 27th May 2020 and email (only) (do not post) to sue@haptc.org.uk if you don't receive acknowledgement of receipt, please re-send.

This opportunity is available to HAPTC members during 2020-2021 only.

Before entering, please ensure that, in the event of being drawn, they would be available to attend.

The Lord Chamberlain has asked us to highlight the following:

  • The nominated guests should be accompanied and MUST be if needing assistance (which must be indicated; disabled parking is only available on request)
  • All nominees and accompanying guests must be 18 or over
  • Guests must take a form of identification with them (passport/driving license); all full names and addresses quoted must exactly reflect these, even if they differ from their day-to-day use
  • All nominated guests must be British or European Union citizens, with a valid current passport; although their companions may be of other nationalities. All guests, nominated or accompanying, must be resident in the United Kingdom.
  • Nominated or accompanying guests may not have previously attended a Garden Party.
  • Invitations are in recognition of past service and it is therefore appropriate that outgoing members, rather than those newly selected, should be invited to attend.
  • In the event that guests cannot attend (for whatever reason) they will not be invited again

Finally, it must be stressed that no alterations or substitutions can be made once the list has been submitted to the Lord Chamberlain's office.

How to Support Mental Health at Work

Guidance from the Mental Health Foundation:

For many of us, work is a major part of our lives. It is where we spend much of our time, where we get our income and often where make our friends.
Having a fulfilling job can be good for your mental health and general wellbeing.
We all have times when life gets on top of us – sometimes that's work-related, like deadlines or travel. Sometimes it's something else – our health, our relationships, or our circumstances.
