Fulbourn: Her Majesty's Diamond Jubilee

Like everywhere else in the United Kingdom, Fulbourn has been celebrating the Diamond Jubilee of Her Majesty the Queen. I hope you enjoy looking at Fulbourn's Jubilee in pictures.

I realise not everybody had the same jubilee or has the same beliefs, but it was great to go to St Vigor's church in Fulbourn and see that flowers had been arranged in red, white and blue:

This was reflected not only in the churchyard...

...but also by the flowers outside the Co-op!

Amanda's Café was open for business in full patriotic fervour...

...While Richard Wombwell's shop was closed, but no less patriotic! (NB Richard writes the popular "View from the Farm" column for the Mill on Fulbourn flora and fauna.)

Gazebos had been found to shelter people attending the street party who were eating Michael Beaumont's hog-roast. (Michael and his staff also cleared up after the street party - a mammoth task!)

David Morris was one of the entertainers from Cambridge Community Circus to perform while the street party was going on.

The Fulbourn Centre was putting on a whole weekend of activities...

...While at The Six Bells children of all ages could print their own T-shirts...

...and Marie-Ann Ha taught children to spin their own wool!

At the end of the day, as mentioned, Michael Beaumont and his staff cleared up the street. Here's one at the shop, taking down the red white and blue balloons.

Coming out of the Six Bells, we saw a potent reminder of what it cost to keep us free to celebrate Her Majesty's Diamond Jubilee.
