WHAT a Golden Jubilee weekend you had.

When the celebrations were at their height earlier this month, we went out and captured events across North and East Yorkshire on camera.

But there were far more street parties and other events than we could get to, and so we asked you to submit your own photographs of your celebrations as well.

A steady stream of pictures has arrived at our offices ever since, and today we publish a selection of the best.

Dancers from the Wednesday Sequence Dance Group in Osbaldwick celebrated by holding a tea dance.

Meanwhile, the York Branch of the RAFA celebrated the Jubilee with a glass of champagne or two.

Over in Raskelf, the Swinton Brass Band was accompanied by children in fancy dress as it marched from St Mary's Church to the village hall. Also in attendance were a Young Farmers' float, and youngsters with ponies. No-one was deterred by rain and the Raskelf beacon was lit at dusk. Proceedings came to a close with a grand fireworks display.

A traditional street party was enjoyed by residents at Field View, Norton.

In the meantime, the Oak Haven home in Acomb was celebrating in style.

The day kicked off with Godfrey Machen telling jokes, followed by a tea dance and sing-song, and a specially prepared cake, decorated with the Union flag, was eaten.

Residents were entertained by St Chad's Scout band.
