Residents of Stoke Ferry honoured the Queen’s milestone birthday with a day of live music, stalls and a hog roast on Sunday.

In a fitting tribute to the Queen’s 90th birthday, the children took part in a crown-making competition, in addition to the arts and crafts that were also made available to them.

A treasure hunt with 90 clues placed around the village ended at the playing field where the final clue could be found.

Organiser Sue Lintern said: “It was a fabulous day, which was widely supported by the village - a great turnout and everybody had a wonderful time.”

A final total of money raised from the day has not been finalised yet but it will go towards community projects such as the upkeep of the village hall and the playing field.
