ROYALS from past and present were the star guests during a special Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebration held by the Hucknall National Out-Of-School Club.

Youngsters donned regal fancy dress as the organisation, which is based at the town’s National Primary School on Montague Road, marked the monarch’s 60 years on the throne.

Children who were judged to have come up with the best outfits were rewarded with prizes.

The event at the school also featured a traditional English tea party and games, which included duck racing and pin-the-crown-on-the-queen.

All those who took part were then upstanding for the National Anthem, which was peformed by 11-year-old George Newton on his ukulele.

Krista Hemsley, of the out-of-school club, said: “The children had a wonderful time and were excited to be celebrating such a special occasion.”

The club, which is a registered charity, runs before school, from 7.30 am, and after school, until 6 pm, to provide care for three-to-11-year-olds of parents who are at work.

It also runs a holiday club, from 7.30 am to 6 pm, during school holidays.
