Hetton - Down Your Way

Have your say

Moorsley held another event to celebrate the Queen’s 90th birthday on Saturday, July 2, this time for the children. A buffet lunch was provided for 30 children, who were then entertained by Tommy Bungle, the puppeteer, and Punch and Judy Man in the marquee. Activities included children’s races, crafts, penalty shoot-out football and a coconut shy with hourly bingo for the adults.

A film of the Queen’s 60-year reign was shown in the Hut and refreshments were served including freshly baked scones, cakes, pies and hot dogs. Tombolas for all ages and a raffle provided the chance to win some great prizes (all the winners have been notified). Many thanks to all the volunteers, who did a fantastic job making the event another great success. Thanks too to everyone who attended and Sunderland City Council for the grant of £250 from its SIB fund towards the cost of the event.
