God save the Queen

Feeling very patriotic as we celebrate the Queen’s diamond jubilee! We had an amazing street party to celebrate, the closest one to the palace. Magicians, a swing band, coconut shy and lots more were on offer. Sadly we had to relocate from the street to the hall because of the rain, but it wouldn’t have been complete without it – this is the UK after all!

A popular coconut shy was made by securing upside down metal ice cream dishes to wooden beams with elastic bands. Just pop the coconuts in the dip of the dish stand and pop up some netting and carpet off cuts to protect the wall and you’re away!

We also had a royal visit…….sort of…….
