What a weekend!
I would like to take the opportunity this week on the front page to thank all those who helped make last weekend such a success. We had a very happy dance on Saturday night where even the vicar was seen tripping the light fantastic. A rare event! Then we moved onto the Sunday morning worship and finally the memorable Children’s Party on Sunday afternoon with lots of laughter and joy. It was a weekend packed full of memorable moments. It took a lot of organising and was an appropriate and fitting way of celebrating the Queen’s Jubilee. So a big thank you to all who did all the hard work and made those events possible.
Yet this summer it seems no sooner have we finished one memorable weekend as we are getting ready for another. We now move onto the build up to the Olympics with all the disruption those events will bring but also all the excitement and fun happening across Newham over the next few months. There are lots of parties going on across the Borough. We also will be welcoming the Olympic torch to Newham as it comes down High Street South and into Central Park on Saturday 21st July.
I have been told the torch will be passing St. Mary Magdalene Church at precisely 11.12am on that day. We will wait and see but whatever time the torch passes the Church it will give us an excuse for another party!
An extraordinary summer of events that I can’t promise to repeat next year!
