The Diamond Jubilee celebrations took place at the Fairfield on Monday June 4th 2012. After a wet Sunday the weather was kind to us and we had a mixture of sunshine and cloud which meant the day was not too hot.The Fairfield was dotted around with stalls, children's games, bouncy castle,face painting, hog roast,BBQ and refreshments.
The event was opened by His Excellency Air Marshal Peter Walker and his wife Linda. They walked around the whole area chatting to as many people they could, extending their proposed visit by at least an hour.
The Douzaine were absolutely delighted with the number of people who attended the event.
Plate smashing was by far the favourite pastime of most children, closely followed by face painting.Many a strange beast dawned on the faces of the children.
The hog roast and BBQ were sold out very quickly. The teas, coffees and cakes saved many a thirsty soul.
The entertainment provided by Mark Bisson, the Scout Band and the Assembliaie Guernesaise Dancers was a lovely addition to the day.
Miss Guernsey, Lisa Knott, had no easy task in choosing best girl and best boy even though there was a only a small number of entries.
