Last weekend was a time of celebrations in praise of our amazing, wonderful Queen's 90th birthday.
Our village church hosted a grand fete.
Inside were exhibits depicting the Queen's life and private interests over her 90 years.
I think this is a delightful photo, proud grandma and great grandma.
The little girl holding her great grandma's handbag, isn't that sweet.
The children from the village primary school made this fantastic mural of some of the Queen's hats.
Using photos of the Queen at various events they re-constructed her hats on the photos using ribbon, feathers, pipe cleaners, tissue paper, fur and buttons. How clever is that.
The Essex Chordsmen singers provided very nice background music
The flower arrangements were by ladies of the village
The school children also created this lovely display of toys from the 1950's to present day.
Her Majesty has always shown an interest in the WI and still attends
Sandringham meetings from time to time.
