CHILDREN dressed as kings and queens paraded through the streets of Carlby as part of their two-day jubilee celebrations.

On Sunday the village hall was packed to capacity as 80 people crammed in to enjoy barbecue food and strawberry and ice cream.

The organisers had planned for a rainy jubilee weekend so their “indoor street party” in the village hall carried on undeterred, despite the stormy weather outside.

On Monday, ducking the showers the villagers enjoyed picnics and a tug of war where the men took on the women.

A small commemorate beech tree was planted on the village green to mark the occasion.

Carlby parish councillor Ian Dair said: “It couldn’t have gone any better apart from the weather.

“A very good time was had by all.”

Over the two days the village hall also hosted an exhibition of royal memorabilia which had been loaned by people in the village.

Plans are in place for a booklet to be produced with photos and text explaining what happened in the village to be a lasting memento of the day for those who attended.
