NEIGHBOURS in Makins Road, Henley, came together to celebrate the Queen’s 90th birthday.

NEIGHBOURS in Makins Road, Henley, came together to celebrate the Queen’s 90th birthday.

About 75 people attended the event on Sunday. The street was lined with marquees to protect the revellers from the rain and a Union flag was hoisted.

Guests brought their own food and drink. Many wore red, white and blue while others wore masks of royal family members, such as Prince Harry and Her Majesty.

Gilly Hudson, who organised the event, wrote “Happy birthday” in boating signal flags outside her house. Mrs Hudson, who applied for a street closure order a year ago and sent out 150 invitations, said: “I sent fliers saying bring your own picnic tables and chairs and set up from noon.

“It’s great for everybody to mix. It’s amazing. It makes you want another royal baby! It enables the community to get together and support the Queen.”
