A swimming gala took place at the Lido and a Jubilee exhibition and heritage walks shed light on the town’s royal links.

A number of activities were inspired by the Queen’s Green Canopy and there will be a Platinum Jubilee Wishing Tree where people could add their own pledge leaf.

There were also a host of stalls from charities and community organisations.

Among them were the Worcestershire Wildlife Trust – there to promote what the group did and highlighting what people could do to get involved, look after creatures close to their home and how biodiversity could be improved.

Paddy Smith, from the WWT, said: “I have had some really good chats with people about what they can do to support nature.

“Even doing some small things in your garden can make a real difference to wildlife in our area.”

In the Lido Park was a funfair, street art and brass bands and the Sophistication Strings quartet performed in the bandstand.

There was also a performance by the Droitwich 2516 Air Cadets squadron.

The extravaganza in the town centre concluded with a Great British Singalong of songs from 1952 to the current day.

A street party – held in Friar Street – outside the Old Cock Inn continued into the night with live music, street food and, of course drinks.

The events were organised by a partnership between Droitwich Town Council, Curiosity Productions and Wychavon District Council.
