RESIDENTS of Trafford Close in Leek brought out the bunting to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee with a feast fit for the Queen.
Around 100 residents and their families joined in the fun on Saturday June 2 at the first street party to be held in the Close since the Queen's Silver Jubilee in 1977. Bouncy castles for both adults and children a barrel of real ale, a decorated crown competition and Jubilee mugs for the children added to the excitement of the day.
Four-year-old Tyler Steele took first prize of a £5 Jubilee coin with Freya Bell aged six and Caitlyn Heath, aged 2, coming second and third in the contest. Judges were senior citizens Mary Szczotka and Gwen Floyd with Doris Boone presenting the souvenir mugs to the youngsters.
In true British spirit, residents partied on well into the night, wrapped up in winter coats to keep out the cold.
Mrs Boone, who has lived in Trafford Close with her husband, Harry, since the houses were built in 1966, said: We had a wonderful time. It was a really fantastic day and we were pleased everything went so well.
