CHILDREN joined in with the royal wedding celebrations at a village party.

Youngsters enjoyed tasty food and traditional games at the Millenium Green in Folkingham this afternoon as they marked Prince William and Kate Middleton tying the knot.

The two-hour celebration saw 50 children and their families get together in one place for the special occasion.

Some girls were wearing tiaras, while others had Union Jacks painted on their faces during the party.

Sara Norman-Smith, of the Old Village Dairy, Folkingham, organised the event, which included lots of Union Jack bunting and flags and regal music playing in the background.

She said: “It is nice for the children and also lovely for the parents who don’t know each other. It’s a chance to mingle and get to know each other.”

Sara, who lives with husband Campbell and their six-year-old daughter Pip, is not particularly a royalist but said she enjoyed watching the wedding on television.

She added: “It is about the feel-good factor. Everybody loves a wedding.”

Youngster Erin Wood, 12, enjoyed the party. She said: “It is nice for the whole village to get together and celebrate the royal wedding.”

Mrs Norman-Smith thanked everybody who supported the event, including businesses and people who made donations to help make the party possible.
