Grandparents gather for Queen’s birthday celebrations

Grandparents Day Greenbank School

The youngest and oldest generations came together at Greenbank Preparatory School in Stockport to celebrate the Queen’s 90th Birthday with a special concert and street party.

Every year the independent preparatory school in Cheadle Hulme sets aside a special day for the children’s grandparents and this year they made sure it coincided with the birthday of the great grandmother of the nation, Her Royal Highness Queen Elizabeth II.

Old and young alike could share their love for the Queen with the older generation telling the young ones, just what a contribution she has made not just to British life but to global affairs for nearly 64 years on the throne.

Pictured above with some of the Greenbank Beefeaters are one family: Natasha (9) and Charlotte Silver (11) with grandma and grandpa dental surgeon Greg Marshall and his wife dental nurse Sue, all happily living close to one another in Bramhall.

Charlotte said: “Our Queen represents all that is best about Great Britain and we are the envy of the world.”

Natasha added: “I think she has been absolutely wonderful and we all love her very much.”

The event also gave the older generation an opportunity to look around the school and see how education has changed since their own salad days

Greenbank Preaparatory School Headmistress Janet Lowe said: “Our grandparenrts are our own royalty and everyone, the children and the staff love to make them feel appreciated, just as the nation likes to do for the our beloved Queen.”
