ABOUT 60 people attended a tea party in Peppard to celebrate the Queen’s 90th birthday.

Members of Peppard WI and Peppard Lunch Club attended the event at the war memorial hall in Gallowstree Road on Thursday.

Guests were served sandwiches and tea while being entertained by pianist Tim Valentine, from Woodcote, who was wearing a Union flag suit and tie.

The hall was adorned with Union flag bunting and the tables were decorated red, white and blue balloons and flowers.

Clive Mills, chairman of the hall trustees, said: “We wanted people who are 80 or over because they would remember the Queen for a long time. It is important to celebrate the monarch.



“There is a great swell of people who want to remember the Queen for what she has done. Everyone here will be a monarchist and thinks she’s brilliant.”

Guest Miller Ross, 78, from Peppard, said: “The Queen is the character of this country because she is always there and she is steadfast, loyal and hardworking. It’s nice to celebrate that.”

Later in the afternoon the group sang the national anthem, gave the royal toast and ate a cake baked specially for the occasion.
