FAMILIES enjoyed their lunch outside during a ‘Picnic on the Green’ event in Milton.
HMS Tenacity Marching Band performed at the Jubilee event at St James Field, in Locksway Road, and there was also Punch and Judy shows, storytelling, games, races, a dog show and stalls. And visitors dressed in red, white and blue in the spirit of the Jubilee theme. The party was opened by The News’ gardening expert Brian Kidd, who also held a Gardener’s Question Time.
He said: ‘It was a wonderful event, one of the best I’ve been to in a long time. And the most impressive part of it was to see that we have such a lovely park, thriving with plants and wildlife, right in the centre of Portsmouth.’
