It was all for the Queen.

An indoor street party has been staged at Honiton Working Men’s Club to mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

The party boasted an absolute feast of food - all prepared by a special ‘jubilee committee’

It included jelly, blancmange, trifle bread and butter pudding and Spam sandwiches (though not on the same plate!)

The club, in Silver Street, was decorated in full patriotic style by club chairman Terry Davies and his wife and bar manager Julie.

Members were asked to come dressed patriotically, or in 1950s style, and commemorative mugs and tins of biscuits were given out for the best costumes, and also to winners of a table top quiz about the Queen.

Music from the 1950s onwards was provided by two-piece band Morning Glory.
