The Diamond Jubilee will see London transformed into a four day carnival and I am lucky enough to be in the midst of it. As a reporter for the US network NBC News I will be working alongside the Today show anchor Matt Lauer at the Tower of London, Buckingham Palace and Kensington Palace - but the highlight will be the river pageant on Sunday 3 June.
People need to realise that THEY HAVE TO look after their own 'beachyard' personally and as a community. I'm a real believer that if a beach or shoreline is kept in outstanding condition then visitors will follow that lead. In addition to locals rolling their sleeves up they need to create a sense of ownership with their children, so for generations to come our Island is kept beautiful.
