March street pulls together to beat the rain for Jubilee party
Sunday's dismal weather failed to dampen the spirits of residents in one March street as they marked the Queen's Jubilee.
Everyone pulled together to make a planned street party the best it could be with making cakes and food for all to enjoy.
There was entertainment from Vicki Mason and March mayor Kim French popped into say hello too.
One resident spent the afternoon supplying plenty of barbecued food, while another, a former Sargent Major in the Army performed the loyal toast.
One of the organisers, Peter Jackman, said: "There are 27 homes down here and 24 were able to join in, which was brilliant. We were a little concerned about the weather forecast when we saw it on Saturday but one of the residents said they had a marquee we could use, then before we knew there were gazebos popping up everywhere.
"It was great comradeship and it meant everyone was undercover, I think it also made it a better atmosphere as it brought everyone closer together. We had a fantastic afternoon and everyone really enjoyed it."
