Some 70 peo­ple at­tended a pic­nic cel­e­bra­tion at South Ash­ford Bap­tist Church to cel­e­brate the Queen’s 90th birth­day.

Chil­dren en­joyed the var­i­ous party games, crafts and ac­tiv­i­ties at the Brook­field Road church, even mak­ing their own crowns.

Mayor of Ash­ford Ge­orge Koowa­ree was among the guests.

The church’s Ju­lia Fin­nis said: “There were loads of peo­ple there that we didn’t know, which is what we wanted.

“It was a bril­liant day – slight shame about the weather, but it was a nice op­por­tu­nity for peo­ple to get to­gether.”
