Headteacher Sarah Durrant said: “The children had a fantastic day, and the Bishop was very impressed by their knowledge of the Royals.”

At Maple Grove pre-school in March, youngsters were celebrating an outstanding Ofsted report with a Royal-themed garden party for parents and youngsters.

Around 100 Chatteris residents enjoyed a traditonal afternoon tea and children’s games at the parish church, for a street party fundraiser for both the church and the Royal British Legion. Chairman Norman Lake said: “They all had a very good time, it was a very successful event and a special thanks to all those who work hard to make it happen.”

Spirits were not dampened by the rain in Tydd Gote, as 100 people gathered for an afternoon of musical entertainment by Sutton Bridge Community Choir.
