I’ve never claimed to be the biggest fan of the Royal Family.

However, the weekend’s festivities have given me a new perspective.

Seeing so many people locally (and nationally) decorating their homes with flags and bunting and seeing communities come together to celebrate has been a real heart-warming sight.

For a change we’ve had something to celebrate!

70 years of service is incredible.

And for Her Majesty to still be serving the country and the Commonwealth at 96 years of age is inspiring and is something that won’t be seen again for a very long time, if ever!

Happy Platinum Jubilee!
