The Croft was thronged with townsfolk who brought picnics, chairs and blankets to The Croft. There was music and entertainment throughout the afternoon with musicians performing on the back of a flatbed truck from A4 Hire. A sound system was setup with the mixing desk protected by a gazebo. The club provided electrical power.
On the Croft Field the monthly market took place in the morning. Then stalls were set up around the perimeter of the field while in the middle of the area there were activities and completions. The Hungerford Rugby Club were challenging all comers to tug-of-war.
The Hungerford Club brought the barbecue round to the front of the clubhouse. The picnic tables were moved onto the grass area for the public to use while tables from the Croft Hall were placed at the front of the club. The pizza oven was in action round the back of the club and the the bar was selling drinks and taking payment for the pizzas, burgers and hot dogs.
Later the Hungerford Town band provided the accompaniment for a sing-along styled after the Last Night of the Proms. Of course the event was brought to a close by singing the National Anthem.
Overall the Hungerford Town Council should be commended for organising an enjoyable, entertaining and happy occasion.
Having recently purchased a pizza oven the Hungerford Club will be using it to everybody’s advantage during the weekend celebration of the Queen’s Jubilee.
Both the pizza oven and barbecue will be fired up to provide picnickers on The Croft with delicious hot food freshly cooked.
Drinks will be available from the bar including the usual range of beers, lagers and soft drinks.
The club will open at noon on both Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th June and will be taking orders from members and the public alike. To save congestion within the club, orders for food and drinks will be taken outside. Tables outside the club will have plates, cutlery etc.
We hope to see you on The Croft with your picnic blanket or chairs if you have them. We hope you have a great time with your family and friends as we all celebrate the Queen’s Jubilee.
