CHILDREN got involved in preparations for the diamond jubilee during a church fete.

The fete, which is held every other year, was held at St Andrew’s Church in Haconby on Saturday.

As well as the usual stalls, children had the opportunity to paint a part of a wooden crown which will be displayed in the Hare and Hounds pub to mark the Queen’s diamond jubilee.

Sharron White, who was one of the organisers, said: “With everything that’s going on this year with the Olympics and the diamond jubilee, we decided to bring the fete forward and then it rained!

“But despite the weather, we had a steady flow of people and we got visitors from further afield than usual, which was nice to see.

“I think all the children enjoyed adding their mark to the crown.”

The event raised £242, which will go towards church funds.

Sharron said: “Even though the money was a bit down on previous years, we were still pleased with how it went.

“It was a good morning.”
