VILLAGES in North Somerset got into the swing of the jubilee with a series of events held over the course of four days.
Hutton residents were treated to no less than three events, with a jubilee ball at the village hall in Church Lane kicking off proceedings on June 2.
Church Lane and Main Road were then closed off on June 3 for a street party, before Des Phippen Park hosted a jubilee party the following day, where a jubilee tree was officially dedicated and youngsters and their parents embarked on a family treasure hunt.
Locking residents enjoyed a party in the park on June 2, a field behind the Railway Inn was the venue for Sandford villagers’ celebrations the following day and Oak Road in Winscombe also hosted a street party.
Youngsters from across the district also enjoyed their first jubilee with Banwell Primary School holding a tea party on June 4 and Puxton Park holding a royal disco on June 5.
