Caister cul-de-sac celebrates wedding in style
A small cul-de-sac in the heart of Caister came alive with bunting, bouncy castles and community spirit thanks to a street party organised by neighbours.
As the Royal Wedding took place, Kipling Close was preparing itself for an influx of those decked out in all the colours of the British flag.
And as well as cake, drinks and huge flags depicting the happy couple, the swelling numbers were also set to be treated to a show by children's entertainer Peter Turner.
Barry Cockrill, 63, credited his neighbour Pat Rawling as being the one at the centre of organising efforts.
Barry, whose grandchildren were looking forward to getting stuck into the junior tug o' war, said:
'There will be lots more people coming from neighbouring streets bringing food and having a good time.
'It's great and we're all in it together. I just love the way everyone is happy today and there's a real community spirit here.'
