PHOTO GALLERY: Holt celebrates jubilee with a royal tea party in the street
The rich smell of cake filled the air today (Saturday) at a royal tea party in the heart of a north Norfolk town.
Held in Holt's Church Street more than 200 people arrived with plates of food and trays of cake to share with delicious cups of tea served from the Parish Hall.
Holt Town Council clerk Diana Dann helped to organise the event with a number of groups in the community and was delighted with the effort that had gone into the weekend.
She said: 'It's been lovely and it's nice to see the work of others come together. I think it's a great thing for the nation and I think people feel that the Queen has done a great job.'
The festivities were launched with a concert held in the Community Centre yesterday (Friday) and crowds were also treated to a craft fair this morning.
