On the Bank Holiday Monday (June 3rd) LGVA hosted a picnic on the playing fields behind the Village Hall to celebrate the Queen's Jubilee. Sadly the weather was not as bright as we would have liked, and a sudden downpour sent many revellers home prematurely. The giant cake produced for the occasion by Caroline & Richard's Bakery in the village was superb and greatly enjoyed by those present.
LGVA are extremely grateful to the Leverstock Green Football Club, the Leverstock Green Tennis Club, the Grovehill Wine & Beermaking Club and to Councillor Mrs. Margaret Griffiths, for their very generous sponsorship of the prizes for the three competitions. The standard of all the entries was very high and our three judges: Mrs. Madge Field, Mrs. Pauline Spendlove & Mr. Ron Harris, had a difficult time in deciding who the winners should be, and our thanks go to them for undertaking this task. Thanks also go to Nick Taylor & Owen Chapman for providing the music and to the St. John's Ambulance for their First Aid presence. Many others also helped to organise and steward this event to whom the chairman is particularly grateful.
