PEOPLE of all ages from throughout the Glenrothes area came together to be apart of a ‘right royal celebration’ at the ‘extended’ weekend reports, NEIL HENDERSON.

From street parties, to special lunches, parades and fun days the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee was marked in fine style..

Around 300 pupils from South Parks Primary School and Nursery celebrated with a special school lunch with volunteer helper ‘Granny Gwen’ being made ‘Queen for a day.’

A parade from the Golden Acorn to the Royal British Legion in Glenrothes was organised by the women’s section of the club and cheered on by people lining the streets. As well as the well-attended march, those attending enjoyed a huge range of activities.

Children from Leslie Primary School and Nursery were delighted to be presented with commemorative Diamond Jubilee mugs supplied by members of the Leslie Community Council and showing their appreciation, performed a specially prepared song at the assembly.

Toddlers from the Salvation Army Hall Playgroup in Caskieberran also celebrated with specially made crowns.

An all-day celebration took place at the CISWO Club.

The Queen’s 60 year reign was also marked at a celebration at Christ’s Kirk, Pitcoudie Avenue.

While St Ninian’s Church hosted a CH@T family fun day to celebrate the special occasion.

And the weather played its part too with the sun continuing to keep the festivities dry north of the border, in contrast to the main celebration in London.
