Flags Flying for the Queen

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.
