Royal Garden Party

Published June 14, 2016 by admin in News

To coincide with the Queen’s 90th Birthday celebrations, on Sunday 12th June we held a Royal Garden Party in the Vicarage garden.  It was planned for 3-5pm, and at 2pm the rain was coming down, but lightly, and so we decided to chance it.  The ‘high tea’ refreshments were set out under the marquee, the urn was turned on, the saxophone quartet gathered and warmed up and at 3pm precisely the sun came out.  People brought their garden chairs and set up in the garden, the children (and some adults) had come dressed up in a royal theme, the tea flowed, the cakes and icecream were devoured, and the saxophone quartet entertained us for the next two hours.  There was a fancy dress competition, with the hard job of judging falling to Christobel Holton and Jeanette Abrams.  At 4.55pm the first drop of rain was felt, at which point the quartet led us in a rousing rendition of ‘God save our gracious Queen’, and then it was a race to get the marquee down, the instruments away, the refreshments table cleared before the rain came down spectacularly by 5.15pm.  As we watched the rain fall heavily for the next several hours, many people were heard to say ‘how lucky we were’!
