The weather was kind for the Queen's 90th Birthday Village Picnic last Saturday (11th June) on the village green.

Around 300 people came with tables, chairs, picnic hampers and wine to create colourful array across Milford on Sea village green.

In the pre-event promotion, everyone had the opportunity to order some tasty picnic options offered by Britannia Thai, Hollands, Polly’s Pantry, Verveine and Jones & Co Delicatessen. Picnickers who preferred to bring their own picnic were encouraged to buy their contents in the village shops, this was all done to help boost village trade a little.

As everyone settled into their picnics they were entertained by an eclectic mix of music from local musicians throughout the afternoon, the artists included; Alex Hall, Nomad, Southbound, The Empty Frets, Tony & Liam White, The Milford Strummers and Jo & Emily Vezey.

It was clear to see that whether young or old, the entertaining range of music was really enjoyed by everyone throughout the afternoon. 

Each performer donated their time for free and we send them our grateful thanks.

Big thanks also go to the generous group of volunteers (in particular Steve Carter) who were stewards and first aiders on the day to ensure that everything went smoothly.

I think it would be fair to say a good time was had by all!
