GALLERY: All ages catered for from High Tea to children’s party as Wimblington celebrates
ALL age groups were catered for in Wimblington as the village came together over two days to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee.
A High Tea for 85 senior citizens was followed a day later by a monster tea party for children.
Sandwiched between these events was a communal service and on Monday evening a hog roast for the entire village culminating in the lighting of the Jubilee beacon.
The village had spent many months planning events and even set up their own Facebook page to promote the weekend.
“A very Big BIG thank you for a great evening, it was just smashing,” one villager told organisers. “All your hard work paid off. As a villager I’m proud to of been part of it.”
