On Saturday 11 June we invited everyone to a free tea party to celebrate the Queen’s 90th birthday. Pier Street is one of very few that are two way in Ventnor, so there was no way we could close it. Instead, by adding flowers to the bunting, we held an Indoor Street Garden Party. The loveliest part was when our Pastor, Charles, and his wife, Nika, danced to the live piano music played by toastmaster Roger Holmes. The love in their eyes reminded us of the verse in Song of Solomon 2:4 ‘He brought me to the banqueting house, and his banner over me was love’.
Free books about the Queen’s faith in Jesus were given to all. There was both an adult and a children’s quiz – have a go at the adult one below (it’s not easy!).
