Vintage Adventure — Platinum Jubilee Party


42 of us celebrated the Queen's Platinum Jubilee at Vintage Adventure on 19 May. As you can see from the photos, we set up the church like a street party.

The children from Pied Piper Preschool sang to us, and even wrote a song especially for our party, sung to the tune 'What shall we do with the drunken sailor'! We had six younger volunteers — Year 4 pupils at Thatcham Park CE Primary School, who joined us to help, in particular with the craft and to serve tea to our guests. They were fantastic ambassadors for their school.

Every king and queen needs a crown so we coloured and stuck on jewels to decorate cardboard crowns.

We sung three hymns and reflected on Matthew 22:15-22; all included in the Queen's coronation.

We enjoyed afternoon tea generously donated by Waitrose. We toasted Her Majesty with non-alcoholic fizz and sang The National Anthem. The new mayor, Councillor Jeff Brooks visited and chatted with everyone. We waved our flags and sang 'Rule Britannia' and 'Land of Hope and Glory', and closed the party with a blessing.

One guest told me, "I haven't had as much fun as this since I arrived in Thatcham 5 years ago." Another said, "it's so lovely being with the children. Can they come again?"

It was truly an intergenerational event and we hope to build on our relationship with Thatcham Park Primary School in the coming months.
