Oh, I do like to be beside the Seaside

The seaside came to Buckley in July !! Back in the Spring we decided that the theme for our Summer tea this year would be 'A seaside celebration', and with the summer we have had we couldn't have chosen a better theme.
So, on the 28th July the schoolroom was transformed with seaside decorations and bunting adorning the walls, window ledges and tables. On the stage we had deckchairs, a sand pit and paddling pool (filled with sand and water of course) buckets and spades, windmills, shells, pebbles and even a boat.
About 40 people came along — some dressed in shorts, sun hats and sunglasses. We didn't have anyone in swimwear, but there was someone in a wet suit !! We shared fun and fellowship together over a ham salad tea followed by strawberries and cream and home- made cakes.
During tea each table worked together as a team to answer questions in a seaside themed quiz, with prizes for those on the winning table. Then, to finish the afternoon we had a good old seaside sing-a-long with songs like: Oh I do like to be beside the seaside, All the nice girls love a Sailor, Yellow Submarine, We are sailing, Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny Yellow Polka Dot bikini and of course We're all going on a summer holiday.
A wonderful and memorable afternoon was shared by all — but how do we follow it next year??
(We didn't waste the water in the paddling pool by the way — we used it to water the roses in our Remembrance Garden).
