Tunbridge Wells residents defy drizzly weather to celebrate Queen’s Diamond Jubilee
TUNBRIDGE WELLS residents defied the drizzly, gloomy weather and celebrated the Queen's Diamond Jubilee at the street party at the Tunbridge Wells Museum & Library.
A group of youngsters put up a dance performance, children decorated crowns and there were balloons, smoothies and a large jubilee cake.
"It's a pity about the weather", Sonia Travis, 40, said, who took her two young children to the street party. "But the kids enjoyed it. They've played Jenga and made their own crowns."
"Apart from the weather it has been a very good event", organiser Katrina Burton said. "We have set the table so people can have a picnic later. When we started it was dry, but I think it's lightening up again."

67-year old Renée Dowsett visited the Street Party together with her daughter and grandchildren. "It's marvellous to have a big jubilee celebration as I think it brings the younger generations closer to the Royal Family", she said.
"The British are really good in organising events like this; the river pageant will be watched all over the world. We should be very proud of it."
