In 2012 Queen Elizabeth II celebrated her diamond jubilee, marking 60 years on the throne. Her reign is the second longest for a British monarch with only Queen Victoria reigning longer at 63 years. She has seen many changes (including heads of state) but still stands strong completing many events every year both at home and abroad.

It was decided that an event of this importance was something that the nation should celebrate. An additional bank holiday was announced along with a number of events. This including the River Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant, the lighting of a nationwide network of beacons and a Jubilee concert held right outside Buckingham Palace to name but a few.

At a more local level people arranged street parties of all sizes. In some cases roads were closed to allow the parties to take place on them. Only a matter of hours earlier this was a busy road full of cars. As soon as they had gone, bunting went up, stalls were setup, tables and chairs were arranged and the music started. The weather was in our favour and people turned out. The atmosphere was amazing. It was one of those rare times that a community comes together.
