Regal-looking cakes and flag festooned scones were among the treats enjoyed by people who headed to the Hainford Village Hall Jubilee Celebration and Fun Day.
Children’s games, cream teas, live music, a bouncy castle, ice creams, face painting and a tombola were just a few of the things going on at the event, which was organised by the Hainford Village Hall committee.
Youngsters enjoyed a teddy bear’s picnic, while adults tucked into punch and a celebration cake at Saturday’s event, which ran from 2pm until 5pm.
Mums of children at Hainford Primary School baked scones and cakes with a jubilee theme. One of the mums, Teresa Watker, said: “It’s been really good fun. We’ve been lucky with the weather and people have been here for the whole thing, since it started.
“We’ve made the cakes to raise money for Hainford Primary School. Everyone joined together to bake them and we’ve really enjoyed ourselves.”
Others who baked cakes were Karen Bevan, Nicki Veriod, Jenna Mallet and Kimm Beardmore.
Sandra Harrison, who was helping children to make origami and stained glass windows, got into the spirit of the jubilee with a red and blue outfit, complete with jubilee earrings. She said: “We’ve had a very good turnout and we’ve done well with the weather. My daughter lives in Swindon and she rang to say it’s pouring down where she is. But then we always seem to be lucky in Norfolk!”
Ian Douglas, who was encouraging punters to fling sponges at him in the stocks and to smash cutlery with balls, said: “We have had a really good day. The kids have loved it.”
The event raised money for various charities, as well as funds to fix the village hall roof.
