Wellies, Crowns. Pork Pies, Cake and an Earring

An odd mixture but they all played a part in our Jubilee Party Picnic yesterday at Sand Hutton.

There was a lovely, calm Thanksgiving service at St Marys and an amazing display of Royal memorabilia (I loved the minature coach and horses). Then later at the school field, party goers gathered for much tasty food and drink and a HUGE Jubilee cake.

It was slightly chilly but many warmed up with cups of tea (thanks to Pat and Angela), impressive welly throwing, pinning a earring on the Queen, chucking crowns and much more. Thank you to everyone who came to make it a special day and thank you to all the helpers – you worked hard and seemed to have fun too!

There will be more news to come and we will post the answers to the Claxton and Sand Hutton Community Quiz (and perhaps some of the interesting alternative answers…) If anyone has any good pictures of welly throwing or tug of war etc please let me know – I was too busy on my loud hailer to take photos! (contact Laura Edwards 468207).

Happy Jubilee weekend and remember there is more village fun in Claxton on Tuesday afternoon.


  1. sorry to have missed it but i think we got the best deal on the weather up here in Glasgow – It’s sunny!

    look forward to seeing the pictures.
