There's been no person too young or old to join with the weekend's celebrations of The Queen's 70 year reign.

Schools, nurseries, playgroups and other childcare settings across the area took part in fun royalty themed activities, including picnics, parties and special assemblies.

Pupils at Tipperty performed a jubilee song as well as God Save The Queen to an audience of their parents before enjoying a scone and playing outdoor games with their guests.

Head teacher Claire-Anne Buchan said: "A great time was had by all!"

Pupils at Tipperty Primary School organised outdoor games to play with family.

In Turriff's Dawson Court, a week of celebrations was launched with the arrival of their very own town crier to announce the jubilee.

Meanwhile at Slater Court in Ellon residents donned their gladrags for an afternoon tea.
