Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Celebrations

Les Pike, dressed from head to toe in a Union Jack, and Fairfield Lower School Ruskin Drive pupil, Arya, lit the Jubilee Beacon to start four days of celebrations for Her Majesty the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

About 300 residents and friends joined the torchlight procession around the original part of Fairfield before the ceremony and on their return still had plenty of energy to give great renderings of  We Are the Champions by Queen and the Neil Diamond classic Sweet Caroline before the the beacon was lit to a tremendous rendering of God Save the Queen.

On Friday the cricket ground was full with an ever changing audience as people watched the three films,  MoanaBack to the Future, and  Mamma Mia.

Here are some of the pictures taken during the weekend (Click on Thumbnail to enlarge).
