On Sunday 5th June a BBQ and activities were held at the community centre and woodland to celebrate the Queens Platinum Jubilee. Despite the weather, a large number of residents attended and participated in the activities provided by Hayscastle Community Forum.
There were a number of lovely puddings entered into the Pudding fit for a Queen competition which everyone was able to taste and enjoy. The winner was Helen Roberts with her strawberry cheesecake.
There was a very impressive display of memorabilia from previous jubilee celebrations. Thank you to everyone who brought items to be displayed.
