Bits and bobs

It is an exciting weekend full of sport with the kick-off of the UEFA Euro 2016 tournament.

The opening ceremony last night in Paris Stade de France was full of joie de vivre ,  especially relevant in view of recent events.

La Marseillaise  was sounding particularly defiant and France did a convincing job (2-1) after a nervous start in the first 45 minutes.

Today and tomorrow are jam packed with interesting features and a real feast for the footie aficionados.

However it is not all: in the UK this weekend we are also celebrating , beside England, Wales and Northern Ireland smashing victories ;-), the Queen's official and "special" birthday.

The 90th birthday celebrations are in full bloom with yesterday's Service of Thanksgiving at St Paul's Cathedral, today with the Trooping the Colour ceremony and tomorrow with the Patron's Lunch.

This year's Big Lunch, where people are encouraged to sit down to eat with their neighbours in streets and community spaces, is also taking place tomorrow, June 12.

It is a weekend for unity, for celebrations, for thanks and to be proud of.

Happy Birthday Ma'am and thank you for your service
