SKATEBOARDERS, classic cars and theatre performances were all seen at Studley's Diamond Jubilee celebrations.

The jam packed event, held at the Recreation Ground and Village Hall on Monday (June 4), saw more than 500 people enjoy a community picnic in the park and barbecue.

The celebrations continued into the evening at Studley Sports & Social Club with Karaoke and a disco, ending with the lighting of the Jubilee Beacon and fireworks.

Lesley Gailey, clerk from Studley Parish Council which organised the event, said: "The whole experience was brilliant. It was lovely to commemorate this special day for the whole community."
