Sadly the weather was very cold and overcast for the Queen's platinum jubilee. However the sun made just a brief appearance.🌞 and it didn't rain!
There were some family's having a picnic in the park as I walked past, the Celebrations were centered mostly around the main Park here in our little village. A lot of young families were out with their children for a walk around the park, so it was a bit busier than it usually is. Music was playing from speakers and lots of buntings and flags around.
Some people were sitting in their gardens near the park, despite the cold weather! having a Jubilee tea with some cucumber sandwiches, pies, cakes and trifle. People have really got into the spirit of the Jubilee celebration. But I think it is the children who are really enjoying the occaison!
I noticed that we have some new benches and planters on the market place, so that will cheer the place up a little bit. The new jubilee benches have just been placed just near the ice cream parlour which is handy!
It will be good to sit there in the summer, but hopefully with less traffic about. I wish the Market place was more quiet and people would park their cars out of the market place. There are two big car parks just nearby so I don't know why they don't park there? The council should provide some free parking days?
I am off indoors now, to have an afternoon Jubilee tea with a trifle!
