People of all ages packed Chatteris parish church on Saturday for a street party with a difference to celebrate the Queen’s 90th birthday.

Around 90 revellers sat down to afternoon tea with many dressed in 1920s costume to celebrate the decade the Queen was born.

There were games for children and live music from Take Two, who played tunes from down the years.

The party was organised jointly by the church and the Royal British Legion.

Alison Doulton, one of the organisers, said: “It was an absolutely fantastic afternoon. The atmosphere was brilliant, people had dressed up and some were singing along and dancing to the music.

“We took the decision earlier in the week to move it indoors because the weather forecast wasn’t good and it worked really well.”
