Townsfolk were in a party mood for the occasion at St Nicholas Church on Sunday.

Musicians playing throughout the afternoon included Helen Bloomfield, Tap The Barrel and North Walsham High School band Into The Crowd.

Competitions were held for the best designed birthday card and baking the Queen's drop scone recipe.

The team of organisers included the Rev Paul Cubitt, town mayor Barry Hester and former mayor Richard Sims.

Rev Cubitt said: 'Given the weather has not been kind and the forecast was rubbish it has been a superb day. It was all about having a good time and marking the Queen's birthday.'

The event was followed by celebration service with patriotic anthems. Funds raised on the day were donated towards the restoration of the church's First World War Memorial Window.
