Friends, family and neighbours were united in one Lowestoft street as a successful event to mark the Queen's birthday was held.

The street celebration in Hopelyn Close on Saturday was organised by residents and friends of the Taylor High Memorial Fund – with £160 being raised for the Topcats charity.

With Union Jack flags waving, banners and bunting on display, Elaine High said: “It was a brilliant day. There were friends and neighbours of those who live in the close, and it was very busy.”

The mayor of Lowestoft, Nick Webb, attended and a bouncy castle, raffle, barbecue, games – including welly throwing, tossing the caber and an egg and spoon race – provided the entertainment with face painting and a make a hat competition for the children.
