DRESSED to impress, Martin Clement is getting ready for a royal party to mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

The 92-year-old, of Pine Tree Gardens, Cowplain, will be just one of the guests at the knees-up in Age Concern’s The Borrow Centre, Waterlooville.

A special lunch will be served at the event on June 1 and visitors will be treated to a disco with 1940s, 50s and 60s music.

After the party the centre will be opened to the public for afternoon tea and there will be a host of family games and activities, including a toy pony race.

Martin said: ‘I’m a royalist and always have been so I’m really looking forward to the party.

‘The Queen has not had an easy life, she was quite young when she took the throne and she’s done really well. I never imagined she would be on it this long – it’s worth celebrating.’
