Jubilee Picnic – Message from the Organisers

We are very lucky that Friends of Freshford have donated two kegs of cider and the NTWI ladies are baking special Jubilee cup-cakes.  These will be available free of charge on the Tyning until supplies are exhausted.

Pleas for help….!

  1. We are planning to have a children’s games area at the War Memorial end of the Tyning.  Are there any Mummies and Daddies out there who would like to get together to co-ordinate this and generally help supervise it on the day – we Grannies and Grandpas are too old!  We already have the following offers of garden games
    • Giant JENGA
    • Swingball
    • TACTIC
    • KUBB
  2. Decoration of the Tyning with bunting and flags

We are suggesting strings of bunting between the bollard tree supports on the south side of the road – can anybody help with bunting and setting up?  Alternative ideas would be most welcome.

The current plan for the day is as follows:

1000  Tyning road closed

1000 onwards Start setting up – bring your chairs/rugs/picnic tables/umbrellas/gazebos/games etc

Set up children’s games area west end of the Tyning (War Memorial end)

Erect bunting/decorations

1200 Picnic starts

1400  Judging and prize-giving for best Jubilee outfits

1600 Picnic ends, complete clear up, road re-opens

Please note that this event is based on Doing it Ourselves – this extends to taking your picnic kit and rubbish home at the end!

Please send comments, suggestions and offers of help to Peter and Sue King on kingfreshford@gmail.com or 01225 723765

Can’t wait to see you all on the 2nd June!
