What a Jubilicious Weekend!


We had a brilliant time at our village’s Jubilicnic street party.  The rest of the weekend was incredibly rainy and windy but when we woke up on Monday, the sun was shining – phew! We helped our friends set up the seafront with long rows of tables and chairs and even managed to put together a gazebo in time for the jazz band.  The bunting stayed up and traffic was stopped.

Travis and the Jubilicnic

Travis enjoyed the day, stealing sandwiches from picnic hampers and getting lots of fuss from everyone.

There was an incredible turn-out.  In the region of 800 people descended on our little seaside village to join in the big community picnic.  Families spilled out onto the beach when the promenade was full.  Games of cricket were being played and bbq’s were fired up.

People came dressed in red, white and blue and it looked amazing.  Children really got into the spirit with brilliant fancy dress costumes.  We loved the royal family masks that some wore. Our friend’s baby twins even got in on the action, sporting union jack bibs.

We live in a village that is a really tight-knit community and events like this make us feel very lucky to live here.  Shame we can’t stop the traffic and have a picnic like this every year.
