Where was bunting for the Queen?

Harefield Gazette - - OPINION - DIANNE LODGE Ad­dress with­held

I WAS shocked to find that when look­ing for bunting for our Queen’s 90th birth­day party, that it was scarce in Uxbridge.

In fact there were not any shops dec­o­rated or sell­ing any­thing to cel­e­brate her birth­day.

Even in the Pavil­ions not hav­ing any dec­o­ra­tions. I had to go to sev­eral shops to pick up sin­gle items, and even that was dif­fi­cult. When the na­tion is cel­e­brat­ing our Queen’s birth­day, how is it that Uxbridge can for­get it?

I also went into our lo­cal Sains­bury’s and they too had not got any dec­o­ra­tions up, or even sell­ing any­thing red, white and blue. You would think they would have made an ef­fort with flow­ers!

Our Queen has served our county well for the last 64 years and still works a 40 hour week, who of us could boast of that?

We have much to thank her for, what a bless­ing she has been to our land, yet in our shops and precincts it has been com­pletely by-passed. Shame on you all.
