THE bunting is flying, the costumes are gleaming and a feast of tasty treats on offer with the Diamond Jubilee celebrations well under way.
A swirl of regal-themed creativity is sweeping across Suffolk for the landmark event with communities, schools and social groups waving the royal flag.
Pupils and parents at Lavenham Primary School created bunting, plates and portraits during a share afternoon this week.
The children also enjoyed a street party and have each produced Jubilee books, which feature details of more than 20 school visitors with a royal connection.
Their work about individuals such as Frederick Fox, who makes the Queen’s hats, will be on display to the public on Sunday from 10.30am to noon.
Meanwhile, First Barrow Guides, Brownies and Rainbows donned red, white and blue outfits and self made crowns. They enjoyed games such as egg and spoon and sack races and sang songs.
