Coxwold Village - Pastures and Moors

Report and pictures

Coxwold held its Platinum Big Jubilee Lunch in the Village Hall on Sunday 5th June.

IMG 9937There was an excellent turn-out of more than 70 people from the village and some extra guests too.  Everyone had brought food to contribute to the buffet lunch and the range of dishes was superb, there being no two dishes the same and nearly all of it was home-prepared.  Savouries, main courses and desserts were there, including, of course, a large Platinum Jubilee Pudding.  Simon LeGassicke concocted a splendid Pimm's, and celebratory champagne and Prosecco were much in evidence.

Anne LeGassicke and helpers provided the super red, white, and blue decorations.

After lunch we were treated to delightful singing by Natalie Houlston who led everyone in 'Rule Britannia', 'Land of Hope and Glory', and 'Jerusalem'.  Then Anthony  Glaister entertained everyone with his Punch and Judy Show, with a special appearance by 'The Queen'.
