Crowds flocked to Coronation Park, Corby, yesterday for a day of celebrations.

There was a 50s theme and revellers entered into the spirit of the occasion and dressed up in outfits from the era.

There were refreshments, displays, music and food to keep everyone happy and at 10.26pm an official Jubilee beacon was lit by Bernard Betts, 83, one of the town’s oldest volunteers.

The party was opened by former Corby Council employee Peter Floody who worked hard to champion Coronation Park and other borough beauty spots.

Michelle Turbett, of Hazelwood Road, Corby, who was at the party with her family, said: “We had a great time and there was plenty to keep everyone entertained.”

Kayleigh Morrow, 10, of Llewellyn Walk, Corby, said: “I really enjoyed the Jubilee party.”

Cyril Sellars, chairman of the Friends of Coronation Park group, who spent months planning the event, said: “The turn-out was fantastic and the weather was great. We couldn’t have asked for more.”
