MARGARET and Alan Baxter opened their garden to around 15 family and friends on the Bank Holiday Monday when they held their own Jubilee Garden Party at their Scargells Lane home.
They had a barbecue, strawberries and cream and one of their guests had made and decorated special fancy cakes.
The couple asked their guests to dress in red, white and blue.
Margaret (70) explained they held a similar event for a previous celebration and friends enjoyed it so much they told them they had booked their place for the Diamond Jubilee celebrations!
Sunday’s rain washed out some of the street parties planned by residents in March and other event organisers were able to switch their celebrations indoors at the last minute.
