PHOTO GALLERY: Worstead school celebrates jubilee with a visit from a queen
Pupils from north Norfolk met their very own queen today (Friday) when a horse-drawn carriage arrived at their school.
To celebrate the Diamond Jubilee a member of Worstead's Ladies Friendship Circle visited the village's school to hand out commemorative medals.
An arch was erected for her to enter through with her lady in waiting and she was able to sit at a throne made by the children.
Head teacher Ralph Hedley said the day had been a 'real community event'.
He said: 'The children are part of living history now so we thought it was important to celebrate the jubilee. We are educating them to be part of life too.'
