The Queen's 90th Birthday

The Church is dressed for the occasion — Our Queen's 90th Birthday Celebration at Café Church.
All is ready for the crowd to arrive — and they did!
We were really pleased to welcome our local police for the service.
After hearing of the work our Queen has done on behalf of this country and reading a letter she had sent to us, we prayed for her and for her continued service. In true proms style, there was some rousing singing of 'I Vow to thee my Country', 'Jerusalem', 'Land of Hope and Glory', 'Rule Britannia', 'Happy Birthday' and the 'National Anthem'.
Kerry Bannon, Chairman of the Village Vision Group, which had secured a grant for our celebrations from Cheshire East Council, cut the special cake and proposed the 'Loyal Toast'.
Lunch followed and was washed down with many bottles of bubbly.
THANK YOU to our team at St Bart's for a fantastic event.
