PICTURE GALLERY: Stunning Mattishall parade to celebrate diamond jubilee
Bagpipes and a colourful 400-strong parade kicked off the jubilee celebrations in Mattishall, which pulled out all the stops to make it an event to remember.
The procession, which took place yesterday from the Evangelical Church, was led by 1st Mattishall Scouts and included families, babies and grannies and grandads.
Kevin Ward, one of the organisers, said: 'We had all walks of life in the parade - from people on horseback to children dressed up as pirates. It was absolutely stunning. It really caught everyone's imagination.'
A traditional fete will be taking place on the village green today from noon until 4pm, which will feature a gentlemen's baked cake competition judged by the Women's Institute.
Jubilee celebrations also included a service featuring all the churches in the village at All Saints' Church, a kaylee dance at the primary school.
