Another Queen’s 90th! Many celebrations have taken place up and down the country for the Queen’s 90th Birthday. Some large, some small; each with its own flavour, ranging from flower festivals to street parties to concerts and anywhere in between, including a ‘Royal’ Garden Party at Hanley Village Hall. Oscar-winning Teme Valley resident Norman Wanstall declared the garden party open and once inside the hall people could meet and greet ‘the Queen’ - albeit as a life-size, but realistic, ‘cardboard cut-out’! As expected, tea and cake was on offer, with the cake selection specially made for the day, including egg-free chocolate sponges made to a war-time recipe. The film ‘A Royal Night Out’ was shown in the evening. Set in 1945 on VE Day the film takes as its theme the young princesses Elizabeth and Margaret as they join in the night of celebrations in London, with the understanding that they are to be back at Buckingham Palace by 1am.

Tenbury Flood Awareness Event A Flood Awareness roadshow run by the Flood Advisory Service (FAS) took place in Tenbury Wells in late June on the car park near the swimming pool. A pair of giant blue wellingtons at the edge of the car park helped attract the attention of passersby. The fire service exhibited its flood and river rescue equipment and the Environment Agency showed the technology it uses to predict the risk of flooding and inform property owners. You could also ‘play’ with a geomodel which is used by the EA to evaluate and predict river flow and investigate how alterations to a river could affect its flow patterns and identify subsequent areas of possible erosion. Inside the big FAS trailer, a huge amount of information was available, along with displays of measures a property owner can take to minimise the effect of flooding using BSI certified flood products including automatic airbricks, nonreturn valves, barriers, backflow valves, toilet bungs, sumps and pumps. A slide show presentation depicted some of the many floods Tenbury has suffered. There was also information about the government and insurance industry scheme which hopes to make insurance available and affordable for homes affected by flooding (www. floodre.co.uk). Basically it works by the Government taking responsibility for the flood risk part of a policy and reimbursing the insurer from the ‘Flood Re’ fund in the event of a valid claim.
