Diamond Jubilee Celebrations
Chelmsford started of their Celebrations at the Cathedral where a big screen showed the River Thames Pageant in London.
The Bishop of Chelmsford Stephen Cottrell told the BBC the Queen has “dedicated her life to service and duty”.
He said: “Those are words, perhaps we don’t hear enough of. ‘My duty’. This is what we see lived out in our Queen.”
People from all areas around Chelmsford and the whole of the country were celebrating the Diamond Jubilee in many different ways! There were street parties, BBQ’s, Bouncy Castles, Cake Baking, Dog Shows, and lighting beacons!
I was very lucky to be part of the Burnham & District Dog Training Club who put on a great display of dog obedience! My little dog, Ozzy, also tried out the agility course and did very well!!!!
Essex Friends Ramblers Group, lead a walk through Hylands Park, where they enjoyed a cup of tea and cake at Hylands House.
Family Entertainer, Mr Wiz, joined in the fun and games at a family picnic on the Green at Writtle.
