Title

Navy Day 2006

Description

Navy Day 2006. Each year a bottle of rum was paraded through the village to acknowledge the end of rum rations in the Royal Navy.
The Church would be dressed in flags with a naval message to the village. At the end of the parade a tot of rum was drunk with a toast to the Queen at the Queens Head Pub. Food, dance, fun and then fireworks followed. At the end of the day the lights on the church dim down and Navy Day was over.
