THE QUEEN’S 90th birthday was celebrated in true British style at a sell-out Garden Party held in the grounds of the English Library in Puerto de la Cruz.
Everyone joined in the spirit of the day by donning suitably patriotic red, white and blue attire and a great afternoon was enjoyed by all. A big vote of thanks goes to the many people behind the scenes who helped to make it such a success.
David Ward, a retired former British Consul in Tenerife and former Ambassador to the Dominican Republic, stepped in to propose the Loyal Toast.
A Royal Hats competition attracted a large entry and the judges deliberated long and hard before declaring the colourful creations of Maggie Knight and Tony Colmans the winners of their respective ladies’ and men’s section.
The afternoon concluded with some rousing patriotic community singing conducted by Colin Price and his ensemble of singers.
