Local Diamond Jubilee Parade

 On Sunday we had a local parade through East Grinstead to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. Mum, Emily and I went in to town a bit earlier to have a coffee and see if I could get some photos.
 We all wore some form of red, white and blue to play our little part - Mum's rings were red, white and blue too :)
 Caffe Nero's had their bunting out 
 There were flags ready to be waved and even the rain wasn't dampening people's spirit
 I love people watching and this was the ideal opportunity :)
 Even down to patriotic wellie boots 
and water proofs.
Loved these little ones with their flags and crowns :)
We ended up standing next to this lady and gentleman. They were such fun and made the wait for the parade that much more enjoyable.
And finally, a few shots of the parade itself

Cheering everyone on :)
Emily's friend, Natalie (light blue hoodie on the left) was part of the guides section.

I'm told this bus was from 1952
The Church's part of the procession
with Minister, Geoff Bell and his dog walking the route too.

We then made it home just in time to see the start of the flotilla on the Thames.  What a wonderful weekend it's been and how fantastic to see all the support for the Queen.
