Queen’s 90th Birthday - Sonning common

GUESTS came dressed as if for a royal event when they celebrated the Queen’s 90th birthday

GUESTS came dressed as if for a royal event when they celebrated the Queen’s 90th birthday in Sonning Common on Sunday.

About 80 people attended the champagne tea party at the village hall.

The outside was decorated with Union flag bunting as well as red and white flowers while inside there were paintings of the Queen’s guard done by children at Sonning Common Primary School.

Guests were served champagne, sandwiches, cakes, tea and coffee.

Everybody was given free raffle tickets with prizes including wine, gin and a copy of Sonning Common author and parish councillor Tom Fort’s latest book, Channel Shore.



Parish councillor Chrissie Phillips-Tilbury, who helped organise the event and wore a plastic crown, said: “Everyone dressed up for the occasion.

“The Queen has lived to a great age and that is amazing but what is equally important is that it gives our community the chance to get together and even wear our bling!”
