The Jubilee started with a competition for the best crowns and regal attire…

… followed by races and multiple tug-of-wars.

There was a parade with various modes of transport…

… which made its way to the Parish Hall where there were singers…

… lots of food and drink…

… whilst scouts were invested and the school unveiled a new mosaic…
