On Friday it was the turn of our neighbouring village of Lorton to throw open their doors to the Jubilee.

Several Lorton folk had been working hard in recent months to refurbish the ancient back yard of the Yew Tree Hall and turn it into a Jubilee Garden.

Today was the official opening which coincided nicely with the Jubilee Celebrations.

They are expecting guests at the Yew Tree Hall  today.

A crowd gathers to celebrate the opening of the new garden.

The ribbon was cut by Elizabeth Dobravolska, a young lady recently over from Ukraine. . . and so the garden were officially open.

Mistress of Ceremonies was Claire Round.

You were invited in (a few at a time) for a glass of Pims and a look around.

Photo shoots with the glamorous official ribbon cutter were also available.

Clean hands . . . suitably decorated for the day.
She obviously hadn't just planted the "Sunflower for Ukraine" in the garden.
Jovial hosts.
The Roll of Honour for the workers.

In the older half of the garden we were entertained by the sweet tones of the Whinlatter Whistlers.

. . . seen here from across the other side of Boon Beck.

A wide selection of instruments, from recorders to base "whistles", most unusual and very mellow.

Inside the Yew Tree Hall the tables were set, ready to receive guests.

Several exhibition boards told of Lorton Life.

The main hall was decorated by numerous local Arts Club drawings.

A Royal theme but with Commonwealth Bunting as well as the red, white and blue.

Tea pots to the fore . . .

Afternoon tea set on the tables, courtesy of Polly Lusher and her crew.

The hall was full to overflowing and new arrivals had to occasionally wait for to find space to sit.

Another lovely Jubilee Celebration afternoon . . . anyone for a Jam Penny.

I hear they are the Queen's favourite !
