Happy children from three primary schools in Westminster celebrated the Queen’s 90th birthday by taking part in a Maypole dancing event.
A total of 100 youngsters from St. Augustines, Essendine and Comber Grove Primary Schools danced and sang happy birthday at Paddington recreation ground last week.
They were joined by Cllr Steve Summers, Lord Mayor of Westminster, Cllr Charlie Smith, Deputy Mayor of Southwark and the event’s organisers Cllr Jan Prendergast, Conservative councillor for Maida Vale and dancer Donna Maria aka Miss Maypole and a host of other guests.
Ms Maria told the Wood & Vale: “It was a warm, sunny and magical day, a fitting tribute to Her Majesty with all of the children dancing.
“I was so proud and full of joy at the finale of Land of Hope and Glory and happy birthday ‘Your Majesty’ followed by God Save the Queen. “There were tears in my eyes.”
