Jubilee beacon hauled into place as final preparations are made in Lingwood
The final preparations for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebrations were put into place in Lingwood at the weekend.
Local people came out on Sunday morning to prepare the first stage of the village's jubilee beacon, in Millennium Green.
The beacon's huge oak post has been sourced from a reclamation supplier in Blythburgh, Suffolk, so the volunteers had a tricky task on their hands in erecting it.
The fire basket will be added on Sunday in readiness for the official lighting next Monday at 10.15pm.
The Diamond Jubilee celebrations in Lingwood start from 7pm, with a bouncy castle, various stalls, a beer tent, food and other entertainment.
