LEDBURY is getting in the festive spirit for the Jubilee, with decorations pictured across the town.

The market town has been adorned with bunting and storefront decorations in preparation for the Jubilee events which begin tomorrow. 

Cllr Phillip Howells, Mayor of Ledbury, said the decorations have been getting lots of positive responses from the public.

He said: "The town is full of Union Jack flags and signs and we are getting lots of people commenting how good they look.

"We are most certainly looking forward to a weekend of jubilee celebrations."

Annette Crowe, of Past and Present jewellers, said how the majority of shops are all fully decorated.

She said: "The majority of the windows, streets and the highstreet itself are all decorated with Jubilee themed props.

"I have a jewelled crown in mine that a friend kindly donated. Everyone really seems to be getting into the spirit which is lovely to see."

Laura Panter, owner of Ledbury Pet Co, said: "My husband and I made our own bunting and decorations.

"The town looks beautiful now and we really take pride in our display."

Ledbury will mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee with a picnic in the park.

The event will take place at Ledbury Recreation Ground from 2pm to 7pm on Friday, June 3.
