Queen’s 90th birthday celebrations –

The weather in the morning wasn’t looking good at all whilst we were setting up for the Picnic for the Queen on Sunday 12th June but, luckily, everything changed and the sun came out in time for the afternoon. P1050841 (2)Many residents of Badby came along with their picnics and blankets and enjoyed musical entertainment throughout the afternoon. The children were kept busy with a quiz and races whilst the adults relaxed in the sunshine. At 3.30pm, everyone retired to the village hall to enjoy a glass of bubbles, sing the National Anthem and cut into one of the many birthday cakes donated to the occasion, with the crowing glory being the most magnificent (and delicious)P1050842 three tier white and gold cake kindly donated by Debbie Walker. Our thanks also go to
Peter Wakeford for generously donating the straw bales used for outside seating as well as 2 kegs of beer, Paul Sweeney and his fabulous, talented band of musicians, and Nev Snell for putting up the marquee. Thanks also go to the army of ladies who put the event together, especially Karen Alexander. Hopefully, everyone will agree that it was a lovely afternoon and bought members of the whole village community together. As a result, we will be looking at possibly putting on another event later this year.  SF
