Over the weekend I took photos of homes decorated for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee in my area.
On Monday afternoon Fernbrook Road, where I live, had a street party and although the rain held off it was cold so we all layered up! We are lucky in that there is a large, grassed turning circle the far end - perfect for street parties - so the road doesn't have to be closed.
The turnout was excellent. Everyone brought along food, drinks and chairs. Even some teenagers joined in for a little. The younger children had a brilliant time racing round the circle on scooters and bouncing around on a pogo stick. It was great to get to know neighbours better and meet others for the first time.
