Queen's 90th Birthday celebrations


To celebrate our queen's 90th birthday we bought lots of copies of The Servant Queen and the King She Serves and distributed them to people in Glasbury and surrounding villages on behalf of Glasbury Baptist Church. They were generally well received and hopefully will be read. One person said " I wonder what her secret is". I told her " I think she gives that away inside." She was intrigued!

It was fun to go back to Llanfrynach where I lived before we married to join with others in the service written by the Queen herself I believe. We were all invited to wear hats and dress up for the occasion which added to the fun. Floral arrangements adorning each window, the font, etc. were created by local individuals. Tasty cakes were provided in the marquee where we could enjoy a cuppa and chat.
The figures were knitted by a friend of mine in the village.
The hat was covered in myriads of hydrangea petals.
