Jubilee Beacon & Barbecue

Beacon litLovely to see such a good turn out for this evenings inaugural Jubilee event at the Dallington Recreation ground.

Children playing on the field, lots of people enjoying the barbecue food and drink.

The beacon was lit a bit earlier than scheduled as people were beginning to get cold but was still roaring away happily at 9.45 when the national chain of beacons lit up.  Thanks to everyone involved in organising the event, bringing and cooking food & drink, and lighting the beacon .
