Communities across north Norfolk came together for a glorious long weekend of feasting and fun to mark the Queen's Platinum Jubilee. 

From the coast to the countryside and in scores of towns and villages, beacons were lit, services were held and people gathered under Union Jack bunting to share food, drink and good times. 

Among the first events was a classic car show at Beeston Regis church - one of only a handful of places across the UK with the 'royal' suffix regis in its name.

Town clerk Gemma Harrison hailed the atmosphere at the celebration.

She said: "I was so impressed. It was amazing."

"As soon as the town crier Jason Bell spoke you could hear a pin drop and everyone just roared and clapped at the end of the speeches."

Bev Reynolds, from the parish council, said everyone involved was thrilled with the certificate, which was presented by North Norfolk MP Duncan Baker.

She said: "It was quite unexpected and humbling to receive that. We were proud and delighted."

Ms Reynolds said the parish clerk, Doreen Joy, put forward the application for the certificate, which involved fulfilling four categories: 'physical', 'sustainable', 'learning' and 'celebration'.

Activities they undertook included contributing to a national 'Queen's canopy' by planing hundreds of trees, including two dedicated to the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh at Gold Park. 

The long weekend also benefitted businesses. 

Kim Steggles, from Bann Thai restaurant in Cromer's Church Street, said: “We’ve been very busy, the jubilee has certainly boosted things.

“We’ve still got our regular customers but we topped it up with holiday makers. 

"We had to turn a lot away on Friday and Saturday, but then again, that’s normal for us.”
