ORGANISERS are full of praise for an ‘amazing’ street party celebrating the Queen’s Birthday.
The Gerrards Cross Community Association held a party to celebrate Her Majesty’s 90th which saw around 140 people flock to the Memorial Hall.
Along with performances from three bands - including a jazz quartet from Dr Challoner’s School - there were also royal games, including a welly toss, and a look-a-like of the Queen, complete with inflatable corgies.
Suzie Bower at the association said: “It was just amazing.
“In the morning when I was putting tp the marquees it was chucking it down.
“But in the afernoon the sun came out and shone - we were so lucky so we had a funny afternoon.”
