Huttons Ambo Diamond Jubilee Party

Group photo at the War Memorial
The day started with traditional games for the children - a sack race, obstacle course and an egg and spoon race. The weather was kind: sunny with occasional clouds.

At lunch time we loaded our plates from the buffet in the village hall and repaired to tables laid out in the lane in front of the hall. Rain briefly threatened but undaunted, waterproofs and umbrellas were produced and it soon gave up and moved on.

During lunch Andy Dorman & Malton Town Crier  (a former Huttons Ambo resident) announced that commemorative jubilee mugs would be given to the children.

Afterwards we decamped down to the war memorial where the Malton Town Crier read out a proclamation, Murray Naylor proposed a toast to the Queen and your humble editor took the group photograph.

We then returned to the Village Hall where a number of residents made a brave attempt to drink the bar dry, while the more energetic took part in a rounders match between High & Low Hutton. I’m told that Low Hutton won.

A great vote of thanks must go to the Jubilee Committee for their energy and hard work which made the day such a success and will provide happy memories for many years to come, especially for the younger members of the village.
