Busy Jubilee weekend

Phew and breath... WOW what a weekend, it was fantastic, 
did you celebrate?
just before christmas i saw a notice in the local parish mag calling for help in organising the jubilee weekend, we, DH and myself went off to the first meeting and came out on the commitee, after monthly meetings and lots of planning it all came together on sunday and monday, 
Sunday --we had a street party(well village hall party because of the rain) including a flag made of cakes , jubilee hat competition, pot luck/bring and share lunch which was amazing, packed together tightly in the village hall we all had a fantastic afternoon.

Monday --was change of venue, down to the cricket ground,(and the weather changed too and was fantastic to us all day) with more cake than anyone could ever need, tea and coffee and juice for the kids on the go all afternoon, while rounders and a "its a knock out" kept everyone entertained all afternoon, we then went onto a BBQ, bring and cook your own food which worked perfectly, we were then entertained by the fantastic Govannen, that had us all up and dancing into the darkness until we lit the Beacon.
a fantastic weekend although absolutley shattered on tuesday, good job we had that day to recover.
