Flying the flag at Jubilee parties fit for the Queen
North Lincolnshire people got into the swing of things to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee with a variety of different events.
People gathered from across the region to celebrate the Queen's 60 year reign by throwing street parties and staging organised events.
For many, the celebrations started early on June 2 and continued throughout the bank holiday weekend and the actual Jubilee itself.
While the events differed in terms of size and location, one thing remained the same in each – the community spirit.
Flocks of people came out in their respective areas to support the Queen and enjoy the celebrations.
A street party in Bottesford kicked off in style – thanks to money received from the Scunthorpe Telegraph.
Lynne Chapman was the lucky winner of our Jubilee competition and she received £500 towards her street party.
The party took place on Monday at Old School Lane where the road was closed off from St Peter's Church.
Lynne Chapman said: "My neighbour told me about the article in the Telegraph and I sent a text message in.
"The £500 I won from the Scunthorpe Telegraph really helped and it has nearly paid for the whole party.
"It has been brilliant and brings everybody together."
Another event took place at St Martin's School in Owston Ferry on June 2.
The school was transformed into a Jubilee playground with themed cakes and activities.
Head teacher Jo Buckle said it was very much a community event.
She said: "We are very pleased to be part of the village's big programme of celebrations."
Children at the school had hand sewn designs onto bunting in celebration of the Jubilee.
The Humber Sloop Spider T was one of the thousands of vessels that joined the Flotilla on the River Thames.
Mal Nicholson, owner of the Spider T, said the experience was absolutely superb.
He said: "I have never seen anything like it. The Spider T stole the show.
"I waved to the Queen and she waved back and smiled and Prince Phillip tipped his hat off to us.
"We more than held our heads high."
Jordan Marper, 21, from Burton upon Stather, was part of a Royal Naval Escort for the Queen.
He piloted the Fast Patrol Boat (RIB) starboard, midships, during the Queen's river pageant down The Thames.
Despite the bad weather on Sunday, the celebrations continued and events showed no signs of slowing down.
The Burton-Upon-Stather lunch club enjoyed a Sunday roast as part of the Diamond Jubilee celebrations.
Opera group Ti Amero were performing outside the old TJ Hughes store to raise awareness about this year's Scunthorpe Armed Forces Day.
And a Scunthorpe man celebrated the Diamond Jubilee in style by winning two tickets for him and his brother to attend a picnic in the grounds of Buckingham Palace plus the Diamond Jubilee concert in London.
Attended by 70,000 people, this took place on June 4 and featured a whole host of big stars – including Stevie Wonder, Elton John and Tom Jones.
Naj Modak entered a competition to win tickets last year but did not think anymore about it, until he received a phone call.
Naj, 35, said: "I never thought I would get to go but it was an amzing experience.
"The atmosphere was brilliant and the artists were really, really good. It was great seeing the palace in the background."
Naj and his brother Moey also got the chance to meet Prince Edward.
He said: "He walked over to where we were standing and asked me where I was from. His wife was lovely – she was saying she was looking forward to the concert.
"We were sat there and we could see the Royal Box. It is surreal looking at the Queen."
Elderly residents at Ascot House Care Home in Scunthorpe had fond memories of the Queen.
Ronald Milson travelled down to London with his wife to see the Queen's coronation in 1953.
The 86-year-old said: "It was marvellous. She was the most beautiful woman.
"The Queen is just a week older than me.
"I love the Royal Family and I think they do a fantastic job.
"It is marvellous that everyone is getting involved."
