People across Suffolk got out their Union Jacks and raised a glass of bubbly yesterday in celebration of the Queen’s 90th birthday.

While the Queen spent the day at her home in Windsor, a host of parties and events took place across the county to mark the special day.

In Great Barton, residents popped the corks on bottles of champagne and toasted the Queen at the village’s Jubilee bench.

The Street Forge Workshop in Thornham Magna, a training resource for adults with physical or learning disabilities, held an open day to celebrate, cutting a special birthday cake and decking the workshop with red, white and blue bunting.

Bury St Edmunds resident Gordon Jones, who in his years as an RAF airman met various members of the royal family including Prince Charles and the Duke of Edinburgh, decorated his home, his garden and himself with Union Jack flags.
