A MEMORIAL which commemorates Queen Elizabeth’s diamond Jubilee has been unveiled on Parson Drove’s village green.
The structure, which was commissioned by Parson Drove Street Pride, was built by students from the College of West Anglia’s engineering, motor vehicle and body shop and construction departments.
Level 3 site carpentry students created a wooden octagonal seat circling the memorial encouraging people to take in their surroundings.
Principal David Pomfret put the last screw into the seat and officially presented it to the village on behalf of the college students.
It was received by Councillor Gavin Booth, chairman of Street Pride, together with other local councillors and members of the Street Pride group.

Roger Reader, member of the Street Pride group and college tutor said: “It was good to see students from different disciplines working together to produce such a piece, that people will enjoy looking at for years to come - I’m very proud of what these students did.”
