Queen's 90th birthday celebration with Norwood and Bishopsholme TARA

Story by Pam Eaton

On Saturday 11th June members and friends of Pitsmoor Methodist Church gathered to celebrate the Queen’s 90th birthday.

Ladies wore ‘queenish’ headgear. It was surprisingly difficult to find nice hats, tiaras being more readily available in a number of shops.

As we sang ‘Happy Birthday’ we were thinking of Her Majesty having to sit through a ceremony for hours, as she does every year. Possibly she would secretly have preferred to be enjoying coffee and a toasted teacake with friends like those in Pitsmoor!

Our next celebration will be for the 95th anniversary of the Home Fires Association on Saturday 20th August at 2pm.
