PEOPLE from Wisbech St Mary and surrounding villages came together to celebrate the Queen’s Jubilee with a huge street party and games.

The Wisbech St Mary Sports and Community Centre was the venue for the event on Tuesday afternoon which included traditional children’s games and races as well as bouncy castles.

Winner of guess the name for the new community bear mascot (Bonkers) was Ollie Hodson, who unfortunately had chickenpox but his brother Callum stepped in and helped to plant the Jubilee tree along with a founder trustee John Parrin who has now retired.

John was presented with a plaque and gift in recognition of past involvement within the community.

Entertainment and live music was provided to suit all ages and eras, including wartime classics and sing-a-longs, which prompted lots of flag waving.

A street party style tea party was provided for all those attending.
