Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - FRONT PAGE -

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.”

A CHAL­FONT St Giles street party for the Queen’s birthday has been hailed as a won­der­ful suc­cess.

Coun­cil­lors and mem­bers of the pub­lic have lauded the ef­forts of ev­ery­one in­volved for a party that honoured Her Majesty’s 90th.

Garry Brown, chair­man of Busi­ness and Traders for Chal­font St Giles (BAT4CSG) which or­gan­ised the event, said: “What a great day. A big thank you to all the vil­lagers and vis­i­tors who came to en­joy the day and sup­ported the event mak­ing all the ef­forts by the BAT4 team and volunteers worth­while.

“Big thank you goes to Martin Hill for or­gan­is­ing the mu­si­cal en­ter­tain­ment and all the mu­si­cians who gave their time at no charge as it helped to cre­ate an amaz­ing at­mos­phere for the whole af­ter­noon.”

Gor­don Pa­trick, chair­man of the parish coun­cil, said: “It was en­joyed by all, from the young ones to the el­derly.

“The whole vil­lage was buzzing. Well done and thank you all again for all the hard work in mak­ing this spe­cial day a suc­cess.”
