The "first citizen" of a Norfolk coastal village kicked off Platinum Jubilee celebrations in style, standing tall on a vintage military jeep.
Terry Byrne, MBE, his medals gleaming in the sun, read the proclamation to a crowd of villagers in Winterton many waving flags and draped in red, white and blue.
The retired lieutenant colonel then lead a procession from the Fisherman's Return pub to the village green where he read it loud and proud for a second time.
He hailed the "wonderful" turnout which formally kicked off the village's celebrations.
Tonight, June 2, a beacon is being lit at the Beach Road car park at 9.45pm with food from The Edge, entertainment, a piper and a bugler.
On Friday, June 3, there is a family fun day at The Hermanus, 12-4pm with a family disco in the evening.
On Saturday, June 4, there is a table top sale in the Church Rooms and the tower will be open for the first time since the pandemic, from 2-4pm.
