Cllr Richard Clewer, Leader of Wiltshire Council said; "From street parties, beacon lightings, fetes and 'Big Jubilee Lunches' many events took place across Wiltshire to celebrate Her Majesty the Queen's Platinum Jubilee and it was great to see so many residents having parties and enjoying a jolly good time.

"This was an historic event that will never be repeated in our lifetime, and I would like to thank everyone that gave their time and worked so hard to arrange the many events that took place in Wiltshire to celebrate this memorable occasion.

"At Wiltshire Council we received and supported 84 road closure requests enabling communities to hold street parties across the county. Our libraries held lots of fun family activities including crown making, communal colouring, Celebrating 70 and a library hunt. Our library staff dressed up and wore hats of red, white and blue. There is still time to catch the Jubilee themed book displays in all our libraries and check out the book list available on our website (opens new window)."
