TO MARK The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, residents and groups across Coventry have been organising a variety of street parties and other events.
We asked you – our Observer readers – to send in your pictures of your events and activities.
Residents of Stanley Road held a traditional street party.
People dressed for the occasion and tables were laid out with a variety of food and drink – just as street parties were held for previous big occasions, such as the Coronation and previous jubilees.
Another tradition Stanley Road residents enjoyed were games in the street, including football and tug-o-war.
Running and other classic races were also staged in the street as residents had a fantastic time, marking Her Majesty’s 70 years on the throne.
Residents in another road – Roman Way – held a mini street party with food and drink, camping tables and chairs.
The event was given extra royal sparkle as it was presided over by a mini statue of Her Majesty The Queen.
Jane Haberfield sent these pictures of her son Henry Watkinson, aged 11, celebrating the Platinum Jubilee.
On Thursday – the opening day of the four days – they travelled down to London. In the Capital, a variety of events took place to kickstart the celebrations, including Trooping the Colour and a fly-past by the Armed Forces and the Red Arrows display team.
