SPORTS AND TEA - Well over 100 villagers and friends met at the Tennis Club in Hundleby on Saturday, June 9 to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee.

Thirty four children were registered to take part in the sports.

Three teams composed of children of all ages from toddlers to 14 years competed in a variety of skills in relay pattern, cheered on loudly by family and friends. Prizes of sweets were doled out after every race.

At the end commemorative inscribed medals were presented to all of the children by Mr Roly Panton, a long time well known resident.

Everyone then moved into the marquee for a traditional tea of sandwiches, scones, sausages and sausages rolls and home made cakes.

John Spalding read out two letters from the Queen and Prince Philip.

The wonderful huge cake was cut by MrsFreda Sykes who had made decorations for the tables.

After a short interval local ice cream was available for those who still had room. Bunting flapped merrily in the breeze and the scene was further enhanced by banners produced by local children in an after noon workshop.

The hard working committee would like to thank all those who helped with the preparation and serving of the food, the sports team, those who loaned chairs and tables, the tennis club, those who donated products, all of the sponsors and everyone involved in fetching and carrying.

The occasion was a great success and will be fondly remembered for a long time by all those who were there.
