St Mary’s have spent the weekend, like most of the country, celebrating the 90th birthday of the Queen.
The weekend started on Friday morning, when the Church Flower Group and other organisations and church groups decorated the church.
Each group was given a window or area of the church to decorate. George and the Men’s Breakfast Group displayed mugs from all the major events of the Queen’s reign. The choir concentrated on the music and various places of worship that the Queen enjoys, whilst Crafty Coffee’s display had an afternoon tea theme. The school provided portraits of the Queen and a collage of Buckingham Palace complete with the Royal Family on the balcony.
On the Saturday afternoon the church was open for members of the village and congregation to view everyone’s displays.
Sunday morning completed our celebrations with a special service to celebrate the occasion. We were joined by the school choir who sang a lovely version of ‘Jerusalem’ and ending with the National Anthem.
Following the service a brunch was served in the Mews by the Men’s Breakfast Group.
A wonderful and fitting way to celebrate the 90th birthday of our Sovereign.
Happy 90th Birthday your Majesty.
