The Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebrations

West Hagbourne celebrated the Queen's Diamond Jubilee on Saturday 2nd June with a very enjoyable pig-roast which was held at York Farm by kind permission of Mr and Mrs Allen. The pig roast was followed by music and displays by members of the Rose Hips bellydancing troupe, the Longmynds Choir and Lepton Morris, a team of Morris dancers, all of which included people from the village amongst their members. Malcolm Brownsword showed an interesting audiovisual show of his photos of recent village events and wildlife.

The weather was warm and dry, the food was delicious, and a very good time was had by all.

Thanks are due of course to Dickie and Mary Allen and all the people who gave up their time in the preparations for the event both beforehand and on the day, those who prepared the delicious desserts and not forgetting all those who assisted in the clearing up afterwards.
