Three villages go into one for party

RESIDENTS of Russell’s Water, Maidensgrove and Swyncombe came together to mark the Queen’s 90th birthday.

RESIDENTS of Russell’s Water, Maidensgrove and Swyncombe came together to mark the Queen’s 90th birthday.

About 150 people descended on the Five Horseshoes pub in Maidensgrove for the event, which was jointly organised by landlady Tracey Taverner and Ian Beecher-Jones, chairman of the village hall committee in Russell’s Water. Some guests wore red, white and blue.

The pub gardens were decorated with bunting and balloons and there was a bouncy castle, pony rides, a coconut shy, a lamb abd pork barbecue and cupcakes with special decorations.

Mr Beecher-Jones said: “The lamb, which weighs 70kg, we got from the Swyncombe estate at cost price and the bar is selling at cost price too.

“This is a moment in history for our Queen, who does so much for the country. It is quite incredible.



“In times of uncertainty and turmoil it is reassuring for us to have her as our head of state.”
