FOR most people, the Diamond Jubilee celebrations came to an end a long time ago.
But not for a group of neighbours in Lee-on-the-Solent, who decided to hold their Jubilee celebrations a little later than everyone else.
The Lee-on-the-Solent Residents’ Association invited other community groups in the town to celebrate the Queen’s 60th year on the throne.
They held their party on Saturday in the Pauline Hamilton Community Garden, opposite the Lee-on-the-Solent Community Centre.
Chairman of the association Richard Mackay said: ‘It turned out to be a fantastic day with a free picnic lunch for the children, a barbecue and bar for the adults, all enjoyed in the sunshine.
‘There were so many events happening over the Jubilee weekend and relatively few later in the month so we decided to hold our event later.
‘We were able to provide a lot of this event free as a result of funds raised by St Faith’s Church at a Jubilee dinner earlier in the year and due to generous sponsorship from Councillor Graham Burgess, as well as Tesco and the Co-op in Lee which provided most of the food for the children’s lunch.’
People enjoyed live music from bands, while youngsters had fun with bouncy castle, a roundabout, a Punch and Judy show, and a small animal farm.
