A wonderful afternoon was enjoyed by all

This year we decided that our annual ham salad and strawberry tea at Buckley would be a celebration of the Queen's 65 year reign — we called it our Sapphire Celebration Tea.

The schoolroom and dining tables were adorned with blue and white decorations and balloons, and those attending, 47 people in all, were invited to wear something blue for the occasion. We even had a quiz where either the question or the answer contained the word blue.

Two cakes for cutting and sharing to have with our final 'cuppa' had been very kindly baked for us by 2 of our members, again decorated in white and blue, and one even had a throne on the top !!

Queen Elizabeth ll came to power on the 6th February 1952, but her Coronation was held a year later on the 2nd June 1953. Prior to our celebration tea we had asked some of our members and friends if they could remember what they did on Coronation Day, and these memories — all different and some quite amusing — were read out after tea for everyone to listen to and enjoy. We could even hazard a guess at how old those recounting their memories were by where they were and what they were doing.

The afternoon was brought to a close by everyone joining together to sing with gusto William Blake's famous song 'And did those feet in ancient times walk upon England's mountains green', followed by the National Anthem.

A wonderful and memorable afternoon was enjoyed by all.
