"There is no better way to celebrate the Queen's Platinum Jubilee than with fireworks."

That is the thoughts of one of the crew from Hemsby Independent Lifeboat, who will be hosting two nights of celebrations at their lifeboat house over the jubilee weekend.

On Friday, June 3, the crew will be hosting a bar, barbecue and music from 5pm with a firework display taking place from 10pm.

Helmsman Chris Batten said: "We really want to enjoy the festivities and what better way to celebrate the jubilee and say thanks to our supporters than with a firework display?"

The fireworks will be provided by Hemsby Lifeboat supporter FlashFX.

Owner Des Fulcher said: "We've got the big guns coming out - over 70 of them - so it should be a spectacle."

There will be another chance to see fireworks in the village on Sunday, as businesses along Beach Road have banded together to buy another supply for people to enjoy.
