Her Maj’s Day
CELEBRATE THE QUEEN’S 90TH IN BUCKS
HUGE preparations are underway for one of the biggest community events in Gerrards Cross this year.
Organisers are putting the final touches in place for this weekend’s garden party, held at the Memorial Centre for the Queen’s Official Birthday on Sunday (June 12).
Royal fun and games will be the order of the day with a fancy dress competition for the under 12’s, and prizes will be awarded for the best King and Queen, green welly toss, croquet and boule as well as an inflatable jousting game for all the family.
Foodies will be in their element as revellers can enjoy a large grassy area for picnicking or you can bring along your own picnic, set up a table or buy fresh baked pizzas.
Suzie Bower of the community association said: “We are keeping our fingers crossed for warmer weather to return as this is a really special community event – we hope to lots of local residents and friends and family joining us in the grounds of the Memorial Centre to listen to a selections of live music and celebrate this historic occasion.”
And live music, playing from 12.30pm from acts such as an upbeat jazz band, the Yakety Sax Quartet from Dr Challoner’s Grammar School and the Accord Choir from St James Church will keep music fans happy.
The bar will be open all day selling wines, beers, prosecco and jugs of Pimms, Little Reds will be cooking stone baked pizzas to order, the royal tea stall will be selling tea, coffee and royal cakes and ice creams will be available from the local dairy.
The gates will be open to the gardens from noon, but as it is an outside event organisers are dependent on the weather being kind.
Tickets are £5 per person and under 10s go free, or £100 for a VIP table for six which will include a jug of Pimms and Tea and Cake.
