Overstrand Parish Council

Overstrand’s Queens Diamond Jubilee Tea Party

The Overstrand Jubilee Tea Party was organised, for senior residents of the village, by Mrs Vivienne Hastings. With the assistance of Mrs Pauline Clarke, Mrs Janet Ellis and Mrs Jacquie Lloyd a full tea was prepared and served in the Methodist Church Hall. This was followed by the cutting of the Jubilee Celebration Cake, a Royal themed quiz and the afternoon was rounded off with singing of Patriotic songs. Each guest was presented with a Commemorative Bag, Souvenir Inscribed Pen and Union Jack flag to take home.

It was smiles and laughter throughout the afternoon; a most successful and memorable event, enjoyed by both helpers and guests (many have said ‘When can we do it again?’).
