A downpour of “liquid sunshine” failed to dampen spirits at a community street party held in a quiet Dereham cul-de-sac.
The traditional bash in Dale Road, off Sandy Lane, saw residents come together under party tents and gazeboes as the vicar picked a winning cake from among 15 entries and children enjoyed face painting and crown making, as well as a Chinese raffle.
Organiser Debbie Clarke said: “It was lovely and we all had food in the marquee and just sat around and had a really nice time. It was nice to be all together, and we had some good craic.
“One of the older residents said to me ‘Don’t worry about the weather - it’s called liquid sunshine’.”
She also hoped that commemorative drinking cups would help the children remember the Diamond Jubilee for many years to come.
