A group of Jubilee revellers enjoyed the Queen’s pageant of 1,000 boats from the comfort of a church hall in Dagenham.

The residents stayed warm and dry by watching the spectacular flotilla on a screen installed at St George’s Church Hall, in Rogers Road.

The day, organised by the Reede Road Tenants and Residents Association, also featured a host of games and activities for children, including crown making, face painting and a bouncy castle.

TRA member Wyn Chapman, 82, said: “It’s been lovely watching the pageant. I’m a right royalist. I love them all, especially William and Kate. And I think the Queen has done a marvellous job.”

Barking and Dagenham Mayor Anthony Ramsay, was at the party together with his wife Cllr Jean Alexander. He said: “This is a fantastic example of the community coming together. It’s absolutely wonderful to be part of it.”
