Were you there? How Leamington celebrated the Jubilee.
PATRIOTIC townspeople carried on regardless during the rain-soaked Jubilee Tea Party held at the Pump Room Gardens in Leamington on Sunday. Rain coats were donned, umbrellas were unfolded, shelter was sought, but a crowd of about 1,000 people still gathered to enjoy the event and to watch Queen’s Jubilee Pageant broadcast live from the River Thames and onto a big screen. Youngsters had their faces painted with Union Flags and some came dressed as royalty.
