Royal wedding gathering on the green at Aylsham

Neighbours gathered on a local green down a residential street in Aylsham to toast the royal couple with in a DIY community event.

Residents in and around Crompton Road made food, drink and mingled happily at an event organised by Debbie Muttock with help from other local families.

'I organise road runs for the air ambulance, but I love the royals and wanted to bring the community together,' she explained.

Families enjoyed picnics, games, and fun including fancy dress which would 'run until we run out of steam and food' she said.

Retired former high school head teacher John Bishop helped fuel the afternoon with 40 pints of home brew beer and several bottles of home-made wine.

Town councillor Andrew Wilton said it was good to see the local green used, as the last time was believed to be the previous royal wedding 30 years ago.
