Villagers in Easton are enjoying a day packed full of activities to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
From arts and craft, face painting and a treasure hunt, to afternoon teas, a children’s disco and a royal quiz, the area’s primary school, village hall and church are all involved.
Jan Stanford, from the Easton Crafters, has organised craft activities at the village hall including a crown decorating competition, bunting and friendship bracelet making.
She said: “It’s for the children but we’ve already had five adults join in so far. Hopefully it will get the kids into crafts.”
At St Peter’s Primary School, on Marlingford Road, Melanie Chisholm’s children Beth, seven, and Ben, three, were having their faces painted.
She said: “We’ve come along to support the village. People have put in a lot of effort to get things going. We will do the treasure hunt as well and go to the children’s disco tonight, too. There’s lots of bits and pieces going on.”
Activities at the church and school continue until 3pm today. The children’s disco at the village hall takes place from 6pm to 7.30pm and will be followed by music and food for everyone which carries on until late. Visitors can take along their own food and drink or order fish and chips from organisers earlier in the day.
