Rain, Rain Go Away…

And don’t come back on Saturday. As that is when we will be celebrating our Jubilee Picnic on the school field in Sand Hutton. Please come and join in the activities and picnic from 12 noon. There will be juice, tea and coffee provided (BYO wine and beer if you fancy raising a toast) and a special Jubilee cake. Just bring some party food to share, something to sit on and be ready to party. There will be Jubilee games to try and a quiz based on the villages. Prizes for the winners of the activities and also for the best homemade crown and the best Royal outfit! Lots of treats and a chance to chat with friends and neighbours. Prize giving and Tug of War at about 2.30pm – see you there!

PS If it does rain, picnic will move to the village hall but forecast looks OK at the moment….
