North Devon has been hanging up the bunting to celebrate The Queens 90th birthday this weekend. Towns and villages turned red, white and blue and communities braved the rain for the patriotic celebrations. Barnstaple shoppers were invited to enjoy a picnic at one of the tables laid out in Butchers Row on Saturday as part of the Queens 90th birthday celebrations. On Sunday morning, heavy showers were right on cue as a civic procession set off from the Square to Rock Park for the Lions Clubs royal version of its popular Picnic in the Park event. Members of the Barnstaple Town Youth Marching Band grabbed ponchos, while mayor Julie Hunt sheltered under umbrellas but the weather soon cleared for a day of family fun in the park. In Westward Ho! on Friday there was a big lunch with a royal-theme in Her Majestys honour. The Big in the Ho! lunch was held in aid of North Devon Hospice and more than 85 guests wore their most patriotic attire for the occasion In total they raised £340 for the hospice. North Molton enjoyed a street party with plenty of cake - and village halls around the region also saw people get together to celebrate. In Barnstaple, Belmont Road residents raised more than £300 for Devon Air Ambulance at a street party held in honour of Her Majesty on Sunday. Organisers thanked the Co-Op in St Georges Road; councillor Fred Jefferies; Tesco; Wimpy; The Milky Way; and Combe Martin Wildlife Park for their support of the event. Schoolchildren at Orchard Vale laid on a right royal feast in celebration of the Queens 90th birthday on Friday. Grandparents, school governors, the Mayor of Barnstaple and even the Queen herself were invited to the tea party event. Also on Friday, youngsters at St Michaels Nursery in Sticklepath, Barnstaple, held a garden party to celebrate the Queens birthday. In Ilfracombe on Sunday, town crier Roy Goodwin led a toast to the Queen and the singing of the national anthem by more than 100 assembled Victorians. It was followed by a concert at the Landmark with the La La Voices community choir. Pip and Jims Church hosted a service and garden party to mark the big day, complete with church bells, a piper and a brass band. South Molton had a royal knees up in the pannier market on Sunday, with free entertainment and a giant Union Jack cake.
