Bunting and flags were raised at Edgerston village hall to start the Queen’s diamond jubilee celebrations.

A crowd of more than 80 of various ages joined in the community event.

The children and parents ran in traditional field games, topped off with the community tug of war.

Everyone was a winner and all the children received prizes. This was followed by a barbecue, a toast to the Queen, a song by Kim Brown and the presentation of the children’s prizes.

The youngsters ended their afternoon’s entertainment with a treasure hunt in the woods looking for the Royal Family’s pet rabbits.

The celebrations continued on June 4 at the Carter Bar where a large crowd gathered at 10.01pm to witness the lighting of the beacon by Gary Renwick which formed part of the “Unite the Nation in Celebration” chain which stretched across the country
