LET'S make her year better. That is the cry of support for Her Majesty the Queen today as she mourns the loss of her beloved mother and sister.

Ipswich's civic leaders have called for this year's Golden Jubilee celebrations to outshine the sadness touching her special year.

The deaths of the Queen Mother and Princess Margaret within seven weeks of each other have marred what is supposed to be a year of celebration and pride.

Ipswich MP Chris Mole said today the death of the Queen Mother on Saturday was another reason we should make "a good job" of the Jubilee celebrations this year.

"I'm sure that those who want to make a good year of the jubilee year will see the death of the Queen Mother as another reason to make a good job of it rather than just letting it pass.

"I'm sure that the Queen is going to have put the death of her mother behind her and will get on with her royal duties. I have every confidence that she will do that as she's a seasoned campaigner."
