We had reason for a double celebration with the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee coinciding with the 10th Anniversary of the Garden Village Hall being rebuilt. A great time was had by all with amazing barbecue food and a celebration cake to fuel everyone to try out bowls and tennis. Face painting proved to be really popular as was the brilliant ‘Crown Parade’ and there was more for the little ones with the chance to have a trip round the village in a cargo bike! We were visited by the High Sherriff of Tyne and Wear and luckily we also ordered great weather. A day to remember.
