Letter from the Queen to the Ladies Group


St Michael and St John ’s Ladies Group run a Tea Dance on the third Wednesday of every month. On the occasion of the Queen’s 90th birthday, 20th April, 2016, we held a special celebration – the hall was decorated with red, white and blue bunting, flags were on each table and everyone came dressed in red, white and blue.
A celebratory cake was made by one of our members, we had a glass of wine and a toast to her majesty.
Photographs were taken of this memorable occasion and sent to the Queen – including poster, cake, committee and dancers.
We have received a letter from the Queen, see below, together with some photographs of the day.


To: Everyone at St. Michael and St. John’s Ladies Group
The Queen wishes me to write and thank you for the letter which you
have sent on the occasion of Her Majesty’s ninetieth birthday.
The Queen greatly appreciated your kind words and Her Majesty was
interested to hear a little about St. Michael and St. John’s Ladies Group.
The Queen was also touched to know of the tea dance which you held
in honour of her special day and hopes you all had an enjoyable time.
Her Majesty hopes you will understand that, because of the enormous
number of letters, cards and messages she has received in the last few
months, it has not been possible to reply to you until now and I am to thank
you, once again, for your thought for The Queen at this time.
