Communities in and around Chester celebrated the Queen’s 90th birthday last weekend as the Royal Family marked the occasion in London with a service at St Paul’s, Trooping the Colour and a rain soaked street party on The Mall.
Organisers of Helsby Community Sports Club free fun fair on Sunday (June 12) promised to upstage the party on The Mall in London and definitely delivered.
Face painting, sport sessions and a dog show got everyone involved and craft and food stalls gave people the chance to share their talents.
Residents of Brookdale Way in Waverton also held a street party on Sunday and even managed to enjoy a fabulous picnic lunch in the sunshine before the rain came.
Last Wednesday (June 8) the community of Elton came together to celebrate Her Majesty’s birthday.
The event was hosted by The Friends Of Elton (Elton Primary School PTA) with the help of the Spar and also Essar who donated towards the event.
A great time was had by all who attended and with the sale of raffle tickets and kind donations £160 was raised for the children at Elton Primary School.
On Saturday, June 4, the United Reformed Church in Hoole celebrated the Queen’s 90th birthday, and the church’s 58th birthday, with a slap up meal provided by their catering committee headed up by Sandra Taylor. More than 60 people attended the joyous occasion.
Refurbishments at the church have included a newly-extended and refurbished kitchen, with equipment donated by Chester Lions Club.
This will be used by groups using the premises, including a luncheon club for older people.
Also included in the refurbishment are new disabled toilets, a small tea bar and ramps outside ensuring easy access for the less mobile.
