Chatteris marked the 70th anniversary of the Queen's accession to the throne on Sunday with a small ceremony at the town's War Memorial.

Organised by Chatteris Town Council and supported by the Royal British Legion, the short ceremony commenced at midday when mayor, Linda Ashley welcomed those in attendance and read a brief presentation, which detailed other planned events for the official Jubilee celebrations in June.

These include street parties, the Midsummer Festival, concerts as well as installing a new town Crier and Town Prince and Princess.

The Rev Canon Wendy Thomson lead prayers and the National Anthem and a special Platinum Jubilee flag was raised on the flag pole, next to the Union Flag.

The general turnout was good, with members of the town council, Fenland Council, Royal British Legion, Women's Section RBL, Rotary Club and Rainbows and Brownies all in attendance.

The weather also stayed fine, with the rain holding off until after the event, although the strong winds prevented the RBL Standard Bearers from taking the standards to the “Carry” position.
